Art Blocks & Bright Moments Present: 923 Empty Rooms
by Casey Reas
923 Empty Rooms is the second collaboration between Art Blocks and Bright Moments, created by Casey REAS.
923 Empty Rooms is a new artwork that builds on Casey Reas’ previous work An Empty Room— commissioned by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in 2023—about simulation and the history of visual representation and abstraction. His ideas about kinetic art and a “binary plastic language” are central, but it also contains longer threads into the history of perspective and cubism.
The essence of 923 Empty Rooms is the selection of one shape or “colorform” for each Bright Moments location — Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, London, Mexico City, and Tokyo. The underlying algorithm combines these six colorforms to create 923 outputs represented as a single onchain collection.
