How much did you talk to artists as you developed the idea?Misha
I live in a building, and I’m strongly involved in the community, at 475 Kent in Williamsburg, which has been a center for artists, musicians, photographers all living in this kind of commune. It’s not quite the same anymore, but it really feels like being part of this living organism.
So when we started thinking about Snark.art, we immediately went next door and started talking to my neighbor Eve Sussman
who’s a successful video artist — I’ve worked with her on several projects in the past. We wanted to get a sense of what she thought. And suddenly we started to get this incredible feedback loop, where we were throwing out ideas and artists started coming back with their own ideas, which bounced off of us and then resonated even more. We owe a great deal of inspiration for this project to the artists like Eve Sussman that helped us conceptualize our vision.Andrey
And New York City is a great intersection for Snark.art. You’ve got innovative blockchain projects here in Brooklyn, and it’s probably the
art center of the world. And then 475 Kent is great — it’s so important for us that we are working out of there instead of some WeWork.
