“Human One” is a kinetic video sculpture by the artist Beeple. The dynamic work shows the first human born inside the metaverse, a 3D virtual world accessible only through the internet. The traveller in an astronaut suit treks forward in an endless, evolving virtual landscape shown in a spinning box-like structure with four LED screens. The journey is a metaphor for human progress, which reminds us of the continued blurring of our own digital and physical existence. “Human One” is an ongoing conversation in response to current events and interests over the course of the artist’s life.
Beeple will remotely update the virtual landscape from time to time with elements from the internet and his own practice.
