xSublimatio:

 

xSublimatio is a digital drug experience.

It is an interactive artistic experience that allows users to buy digital molecules and make drugs on the blockchain using NFTs.

 

xSublimatio is a questioning of the aesthetic potential of the web3, coding and artificial intelligence, in the era of massive digitalization of all aspects of reality.

 

While the consumption of images and data on the Internet have become more than ever an addiction generating hormonal releases, the project use NFT’s technology to stage the representations of molecules (symbol of our tangible reality) through the prism of the drugs and of the water.

The genesis 

xSublimatio is based on Pierre Pauze’s 2019 film “Please Love Party”.


In this movie Pauze questions what love is from the viewpoint of chemistry and waves. After synthesising a molecular love potion in the laboratory - in reality a powerful psychotropic drug made from chemical components and drugs found on the Darknet - Pauze transferred its essential information into water using a wave transmission device.

According to the controversial scientific theory of "water memory", this process enables water to be loaded with information that alters its molecular composition in order to transmit data or to transform it into any substance.

As there is no consensus on this theory, the drug thus becomes homeopathic and fictional, until proven otherwise. 

 xSublimatio is the extension of this project on the blockchain 

This project is at the crossroads of art, science and gaming. It is the next evolution of Pauze’s video artwork, which documents the behaviour of partygoers when a new synthetic drug is given to them. This time, instead of acting as observers, we participate in a virtual drugs market as collectors, cooks and art dealers. 

Drugs similar to those used during “Please Love Party” were broken down into different types of molecules. In xSublimatio, the artist generated visual representations of each of those molecules based on their chemical composition using the latest AI techniques.

 

These molecules can be assembled together in order to create different types of drugs, each with unique visuals.
