Akihiro Kato exhibited “Kazokutchi,” his NFT robot-based digital artificial lifeform installation, at WRO Media Art Biennale, a large-scale media art exhibition held in Wroclaw, Poland. The work considers the implications of new technologies such as blockchain and NFT for society; for example, physical robot behavior is reflected in blockchain-based NFT actions, and the work is intersected with metaphors for elements of human society such as “house” and “family lineage.” During the exhibition, Kato exchanged ideas and opinions with European artists and curators, conducting in-depth and substantive discussions about the development of the work.
