Art: Marita Vollborn - Provocative, classic, digital.
Marita Vollborn is a German artist and publisher who created a remarkable collection of sculptures entitled “Sinn und Scherben® (Sense and Shards). “Sinn und Scherben”® consists of 50 clay and bronze sculptures that represent different aspects of human nature, such as pain, joy, courage and love. Her sculptures are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also convey messages and meanings that challenge the viewer to reflect on their own lives and society.
Vollborn recently converted some of her sculptures into NFT digital artworks, which are exclusive and rare works of art that can be collected and traded on the blockchain. Vollborn's NFT artworks are based on photographs of her sculptures, which she has digitally enhanced and manipulated to create unique works of art. It has also added animations, music, and sound effects to some of its NFTs to give collectors an even more immersive and interactive experience. By converting her sculptures into NFTs, Vollborn not only reaches a wider audience and shares her vision and passion with the world, but also ensures that her artworks are exclusive and rare as each NFT has a limited edition and verified ownership.
