Totem : Symbols of Change

Totem is a unique collaboration between Beer van Geer and Studio Poca (Julie de Ruijter), aiming to transform the complexity and beauty of heartbeats into visual art. Utilizing the unique patterns in heartbeat data – specifically the interbeat intervals – they generate unique geometric shapes, creating a bridge between biology and art. Each piece in the Totem series is born from heartbeat data. Collectors are given the choice to input their own heartbeat through an interactive ritual, or alternatively, a random anonymized heartbeat series from our database will be used. The minting technology behind this series is the ArtBlocks Engine, but instead of using the random hashstring that is normally utilised, the heartrate data is used in the creation process. The data is stored on ipfs and embedded as external asset on the blockchain. Every line originates from a basic geometric shape chosen randomly based on the data. Other features such as line thickness and the quantity of lines are also determined randomly by the data. Despite the simplicity of these elements the system offers a wide variety of possible variations. Heart rate data holds a captivating allure for generative art. It is a unique biological signature, rhythmically charting the ebb and flow of our very existence. By using this data as a raw material for art creation, we infuse a deeply personal, living element into the art-making process, creating pieces that are not only visually appealing but also intimately tied to the life force of an individual.
