REMIX ME - Hackatao

We find ourselves here in the highest planes of Olympus. Dike, daughter of Zeus and Themis, because of her integrity and impartiality called Justice.

With the web and technology as the architects of a Golden Age 2.0, we bring her back to us humans, on Earth, to question her and trust her.

We could only do it through Art.

Justice, always depicted with a blindfold, to which are added a scale and that sword that in Hackatao's vision appears in the guise of a paintbrush.

The screen of the smartphone becomes the Table of the Law, just to remind us how much in our contemporaneity the web is the sovereign judge, with the infinite window opened by the internet and from personal and collective exposure on social media.

However, this blindfolded goddess sees us very well, daughter of her time and participant in the most innovative and avant-garde dynamics. As has been the case for centuries, she does so through art.

She holds a paintbrush in her hand but she "dresses up" in digital.

She paints herself but she does it on a screen and even more she decides to (re)paint herself.

She gives herself possibilities of change, and of reincarnation. She lives and will live again every time she is reborn in one of her REMIXes.

She is a wise and brash goddess, just and defiant.

It is she who pursues what in millennia has caused research and death, poisoning and discovery: the elixir of eternal life. She is on her way to open discussion and dialogue, keeping alive the intellectual confrontation that has kept societies all over the world thriving and towards the future.

This work of Hackatao - which manifests itself through the two faces of her soul, physical and digital - wants to start and trace the way to the discussion on copyright in the digital art world, with the collaboration of the law firm Piselli & Partners.

Therefore, it wants to represent a starting point and a use case for the law firm's proposal of new copyright enforcement regulations and ideas, through art itself in the form of artwork.

To do so, the artists propose that the artwork itself be part of a real experiment that can lead to further developments and advances in this field, specifically referring to the world of digital art certified through blockchain technology (crypto art).

To support this, a special fil rouge that will accompany the whole project and live even further: the Dynamic Token. A token that is mutable in time, changes its data; an artwork in constant evolution and recognizing in its royalties the ownership of the different actors which participate in this process of creation.

The Hackatao duo expresses its position regarding the particular phenomenon of "remix" in art, proposing themselves that this work is "remixed": "REMIX ME". This experiment is also intended to analyze how the sharing of the work and the widespread use of the same among a greater number of users can increase its value. Not only commercial - a simple consequence - but above all artistic, referring to this process as a true ARTISTIC OPERATION.

Where the rights stand in all of this, we will find out through the proposal of the law firm, the response of the crypto community and the discussion that will be opened among the various existing platforms. But above all through the reaction and the "gesture" of those who see first and far: the artists.

REMIX ME - GUIDELINES

The phenomenon of remixes has always been very controversial in the history of art.

Today, in the world of digital art, is even more questionable.

REMIX ME is not a simple art project; it is an experiment, a collective effort to open the discussion about the present and the future of copyright and ownership.

It is very simple: you remix us, we remix you.

If you’d like, there are guidelines. If not, there aren’t.

In any of these cases, you will still be part of the bigger endeavor for art and its community to keep pushing the boundaries of society and humanity.

1. Download the digital file of "Remix Me"

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1W98Dvr_qGJOsPNZypO8bbbxtq8Tpl5nM?usp=sharing

Submit your Work and accept the Guidelines

https://forms.gle/t1YXn6n6UpLQ6mbs7

By submitting the Work and the documentation, you accept the Project Regulations.

2. Your remix will be selected to be remixed by Hackatao and be part of the "Remix ME" project

Amongst all the submissions, the artists who will be selected by the organizers of the “REMIX ME” project will have their works remixed by artist duo Hackatao. They will also have direct access to be an artist on Makersplace platform and be able to mint their NFT(s): first, the work for the “Remix Me” project and later their other creations.

3. Hackatao will remix your remixes in 4 drops on Makersplace

There will be 4 Drops with auction on Makersplace.

Each drop presents the “Collective Work” created by Hackatao, who will in turn remix the remixed works presented by the participating artists.

When the NFT of the “Collective Work” is sold, a percentage is also transferred to the artists selected for the remixes used in that specific remix, to enhance their participation.

4. You will tokenize your authorized remix on Makersplace and be part of the drop together with the Remix of remixes by Hackatao

The drop, on Makersplace, will present the Remix of Remixes by Hackatao + all the selected remixes. You will mint your remix work on Makersplace that will be auctioned together with the other remixes and the Remix of Remixes by Hackatao.

Your NFT is your creation, but in case of a sale, you can freely choose to transfer a percentage to Hackatao.

DYNAMIC TOKEN

In addition to all this, we have a special fil rouge that will accompany the whole project and live even further: the Dynamic Token. A token that is mutable in time, changes its data, meaning that it is an artwork in constant evolution.

Each time the Dynamic Token changes, Hackatao create and auction an NFT, which represents the crystallization - snapshot - of the new work of art (so-called collective work or remixing of remixes).

The proceeds from the sale are shared between the organizers, the collector, and the artists selected by Hackatao for the collective work. Each time the collective work changes and different artists are involved, different artists will be inserted in the smart contract of the Dynamic Token for revenues and royalties on that specific Remix of Remixes of which they are part.

The collector of the Dynamic Token plays a fundamental role in the project:

He/she agrees to the derivation of additional NFTs by Hackatao;

He/she agrees that the NFT purchased by him/her will change over time, accepting any visual modification of the work upstream, without being able to oppose it.

The organizers, therefore, recognize a% to the collector, who makes his/her WORK available to Hackatao, so that further NFTs independent from the Dynamic Token can derive from it.

If the collector decides to sell the Dynamic Token, he/she will continue to receive the same% on the sales of the NFTs of the collective works issued before the sale. For each NFT issued after the sale, the buyer of the Dynamic Token will take over.

We hope that you and the entire community will enjoy this project, but especially that you will be joining the discussion towards progress and enhancement, fully supported by technology.

For any doubts or if you wish to reach out to us, we would be very happy to have you in our telegram channel: https://t.me/joinchat/rkbBv5-U1dczN2U0
