Libertas is Latin for freedom

From the artwork titled “Libertas?” – 100 x 70 cm, charcoal and graphite on Schoellerhammer paper.

Although we are among the privileged few on this planet and have the potential and the ability to achieve many things, we are still held within a fragile system of rules and regulations, along with social safeguards, that preserve the limited rights that human civilizations have worked hard to establish throughout history.

Drawing “Libertas?” | From physical Art to NFT Art.

I hold significant doubts regarding the existence of absolute freedom. Our minds are confined by cognitive biases, notions, and beliefs and we are bound by factors such as aging and mortality, as well as a multitude of physical and psychological constraints. Freedom is undoubtedly a compelling notion, but it persists as a symbolic representation, a romanticized and idealized imagery. In my mind, freedom takes the shape of a wistful goddess adorned with a crown of vibrant flowers. Nonetheless, she succumbs to the fleeting nature of time, her movements hindered by a cloak that allows her little freedom to manoeuvre. The renaissance enabled by blockchain art is glorified through the creative evolution sparked by the interplay of necessity, passion, courage and freedom. In today’s world, financial freedom is essential for ensuring a dignified life. However, this freedom cannot be achieved through the flawed reasoning of political economy, particularly when it is also marred by the blight of corruption. Individuals should have the essential tools to exercise self-determination and make choices that embody true freedom. The new model of value tradability through assets represents a profound acceptance of individual and collective responsibility within a community. In this community, the value of one element influences the value of others. This idea strives to spread human, social and economic value, along with freedom, beyond cultural and geographical boundaries. I personally want to fully embrace this transformative era by immersing myself in this network adding a fresh and solid connection driven by the empowering potential of art. For centuries, history has consistently shown that art is a unique asset capable of increasing in value as time passes, transcending the mere notion of cost. I aspire for my art to become an integral part of human history. My strong belief is that blockchain technology represents the most enduring medium ever created by humankind. I am willing to stake the entire value of my art by immersing it completely in this medium. Every artist makes a similar wager when deciding whether to bring their artwork to life, be it on paper, canvas, or stone. I have made my choice: to place the utmost value in the finest available medium. The creative evolution resulting from the interplay of necessity, passion, courage, and freedom glorifies the renaissance facilitated by blockchain art. Cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, were invented to liberate people from oppressive economic mechanisms characterized by inequality. It is crucial to discuss this aspect. In today’s world, financial freedom is essential for ensuring a dignified life. However, this freedom cannot be achieved through the flawed logic of political economy and corruption. Individuals need to equip themselves with the right tools to exercise self-determination and make choices that embody true freedom. The new model of value tradability through assets represents a profound acceptance of individual and collective responsibility within a community. In this community, the value of one element influences the value of others. This concept aims to distribute human, social, and economic value, as well as freedom, across cultural and geographical boundaries. I personally want to embrace this transformative era by immersing myself in this network, contributing a new strong and solid link propelled by the empowering potential of art. History has demonstrated for centuries that art is the only resource capable of appreciating in value over time, transcending the mere notion of cost. I aspire for my art to become an integral part of humanity’s history. I firmly believe that blockchain technology represents the most resilient medium ever invented and constructed by humankind. I am willing to stake the entire value of my art by immersing it in this medium. Every artist makes a similar wager when deciding whether to bring their work of art to life on paper, canvas, or stone. I have made my choice – to position the highest value within the best medium available.

Meaning behind NFT 1:1 “Nova Libertas”

Art placed and traded on the blockchain serves as a tool to shape our journey in a new world. The essence of freedom can be compared to a regal crown adorned with ethereal, artificial flowers. It is a glorious and yet so fragile idea, bearing a divine responsibility. To attain freedom, one must willingly surrender to their passions. As we wander through the realm of freedom, picking its blossoms, we evolve into weary gods.
Freedom is not a destination but a journey, an alluring dance of refracted light. Humanity, drawn by the appeal of freedom, embarks on an unknown path. Courage, dedication, and determination are essential prerequisites for this journey. Freedom demands trust in both oneself and fellow travellers on this daring pursuit. In this realm we all stand as equals, resembling replicas before the motherly figure of Libertas. Freedom reveals itself in the explosion of creative expression, intertwining lives, and the vibrant exchange of ideas. Approaching life through ingenious arrangements embodies the very spirit of freedom. Freedom wields the power to dismantle and rebuild; it has the potential to reshape the world into new and innovative structures. It possesses the ability to revolutionize everything while seemingly changing nothing at all. Freedom reveals intelligence and willpower; it can even sacrifice itself by virtue of its self-determination. Ultimately, freedom is a characteristic of humanity. It embodies contradiction and it is free to mould its identity and define itself as it desires.

Master+Master

A few years ago, “LIBERTAS” and I were in my master’s studio. Along my journey, I wholeheartedly acknowledged my master as my artistic mentor, akin to a fatherly figure. We don’t exist in isolation; our identity takes shape through our interactions with others. Everyone needs a guiding presence, a significant individual to light the way for introspection infused with humbleness. I have consistently opted for the finest choices in my pursuit and I’m grateful for everything I received during this journey.

L.I.B.E.R.T.A.S.: Visionary Artworks in the Era of Ordinals.

Emanuele Dascanio has decided to present his new revolutionary artistic project to the world. The chosen location is the decentralized realm of the Bitcoin blockchain, the only medium capable of spreading the idea that the artwork aims to express to the maximum. The project, named “L.I.B.E.R.T.A.S.,” will merge his artistic works dating back nearly a decade ago with the Bitcoin blockchain technology of Ordinals. The decision to use visionary artworks from a decade past may seem bold, but Dascanio holds a fervent belief: his works contain conceptual, theoretical, and humanistic allusions that not only persist in their relevance today, but, in a visionary manner, align perfectly with the contemporary, innovative narrative underlying the genesis of Bitcoin. From a young age, Emanuele Dascanio devoted himself to the art of craftsmanship, exploring controversial themes without ever fearing to challenge the stylistic conventions of his time. His artistic creations serve as profound reflection on society and the human condition. He gained recognition for his skill in encapsulating the core of emerging art, almost foreseeing the course of the future. At the heart of the blockchain, Dascanio is preparing an impassioned discussion about the connection between the past and the future, between art and technology. He wishes to shed light on how the intrinsic themes of his former artworks seamlessly intersect with the concept of Ordinals, where the value and identity of each digital object are distinctly defined, immutable and preserved as an added asset for eternity on the blockchain. The purpose of this project transcends that of a mere artistic exhibition; it is a bridge between generations, a fusion between art and technology, an encounter between the past and the future.

Ordinalstudio: L.I.B.E.R.T.A.S

OrdinalStudio is an ambitious artistic project whose first launch will introduce L.I.B.E.R.T.A.S., an art collection of extraordinary beauty, signed by Emanuele Dascanio, one of the most recognized and appreciated digital artists, who also appears in the top 100 on SuperRare. The collection includes a total of 630 art pieces of the highest quality, and each one has its own unique features. These are extraordinary creations originated from the artwork “Nova Libertas” (1/1), with a current value of $65k and presently, it can be found within the TuringFund collection. A particularly fascinating aspect of this endeavour is that the artwork “Nova Libertas” will experience a process of transformation: the collector will burn it as a symbolic gesture and the artist will re-register it on Bitcoin (BTC), making it unique again in its kind. Afterwards, it will be gifted to one of the 630 lucky owners of the collection. The artworks featured in this collection are distinguished by their quality and rarity and this is reinforced by the fact that they follow two distinct time streams and evaluation concepts, thus emphasizing their uniqueness and significance.

On 2023-02-22 at 13:01:31 UTC, I minted my first Ordinal on the BTC blockchain.

Here is the immortal painting I enjoy etching onto the BTC canvas of memory: a self-portrait in the throes of creation, a symphony of self-discovery as art flows through my veins. This visual testimony will forever dance in the realm of the blockchain, entangled in the delicate threads of eternal time. This is not just modest photography anymore; it’s a pure reflection of the nuances of life now elevated to the highest levels of artistic sanctity.
It is not a commodity in the clamouring market’s grasp, it is not for sale but rather a sovereign declaration, a proclamation of ownership that extends its embrace to encompass both the singular self and the collective soul of humanity. Oh, the sweet tendrils of decentralization that infuse this piece with its ethereal essence! It does not thrive within the confines of a gilded frame, bound by price tags, but rather it blossoms unrestrained in the endless garden of shared appreciation. A treasure that was given to me, yet a treasure shared by all: a gathering of souls brought together by the very core of creativity. I am moved not only by the ethereal beauty of my artistically rendered face but also by the benevolent currents that have guided my steps on this journey. I want to express my gratitude to the custodian of TuringFund.sats, a mentor to ordinals and a kindred spirit in the realm of cryptocurrency. It’s his guidance and support that have allowed my wings to soar in this new world.

As I write my gratitude, a flood of emotions rushes within me: a symphony of humility and honour, woven into the tapestry of existence. Let it be known that we are not just mortals bound by fleeting moments, but radiant spirits inscribing our essence onto the canvas of eternity. And therefore, I let this image be the vehicle through which I am immortalized and remembered: a symbol of creation, shared ownership, and the harmonious dance of interconnected hearts.

From “Nova Libertas” to “Mother Libertas,”

The inexorable flow of time with its ever-shifting and intricate transformations finds anchorage within the theatres of existence through acts of metamorphosis that echo the elusive idea of freedom. This abstract concept, evanescent yet compelling, defies its very definition and demands a more extensive discussion than a single word can provide. First of all, we ask ourselves with legitimate perplexity whether freedom is more than a mere chimera, an unattainable goal on which human dreams rest. This question, rooted in the realm of contemplation, gives space to the free flow of doxa, a flowering corolla of divergent points of view, unrepeatable perspectives and contradictions which, paradoxically, find their foundation in the authenticity of Veritas itself. In this perpetual cycle of birth and self-destruction, courage detaches itself from the anchor of reason emerging triumphant. Challenge, taking risks, and unwavering belief are the tangible manifestations of freedom, encouraging people to take daring actions and pursue bold visions and ambitious dreams. Here, in this forge, the fertile source where all things take shape and come to life, even time gives in to its own metamorphosis dividing in binary directions. Thus, the eternal cycle of “Libertas” unfolds- “Nova Libertas” – “Mater Libertas,” emerging from the chaos of possibilities. Manifesting itself in the powerful acronym, the L.I.B.E.R.T.A.S. it stands like a shattered cloud arising from a unique and fluid substance like a living and elusive idea, which persists in the heart of the human desire for freedom.

The soul of Mother Libertas

It was Christmas Eve 2009, and the clock marked 11:01 in the morning, and a magical atmosphere enveloped the city. Golden snowflakes gently fell, turning the streets and roofs into a shimmering mantle. The excitement of Christmas was in the air, with people rushing around for the final preparations.
In the heart of the city, beneath the mysterious light of the symbols, stood the magnificent statue of Mater Libertas. With her gaze turned towards the city, the statue scrutinized the hearts and lives of its inhabitants. Her gentle and reassuring voice echoed through the frozen air. The words she spoke were veiled in mystery; some whispered that only those who were considered modern Gladiators knew their meaning. From that moment, the statue remained motionless, observing the constant passage of time. Exactly 13 years later, on November 13, 2023, the eyes of the statue began to shine again with a warm and welcoming light. Spartacus mysteriously appeared with his triumphant sword, and an irresistible force compelled him to the golden glow of her gaze. Mater Libertas whispered the number “31322” and vanished again, deepening the secrecy surrounding her presence and her enigmatic connection with those who dared to come close.

Mother Libertas: The Masterpiece Engraved on the Bitcoin Blockchain.

Today (November 26, 2023), in the heart of the digital artistic revolution, a milestone in the history of art was carved: “Mother Libertas”. This epic work of art, depicted in 1:1 scale, has finally found its eternal home engraved on a rare 2009 Satoshi on the Bitcoin Blockchain. The unprecedented and damned stunning HD video is an ode to boldness and sacrifice, challenging the eponymous fare that couldn’t stem the creative momentum.

In a world where art requires sacrifice, “Mother Libertas” has emerged as a beacon of rebirth and innovation. The first step towards the issuing of limited editions of “LIBERTAS” has been taken, inaugurating a new artistic era. “Mother Libertas,” the seminal work of art that will give life to the limited editions, has been officially elevated to Ordinal. From the word of the Father descends the Mother, the matrix, which inaugurates the prestigious “LIBERTAS” Limited Editions. The Ordinal, a 1:1 scale masterpiece by Emanuele Dascanio, already kept in the Turing Fund NFT private collection on Ethereum, will soon abandon this digital home to find an eternal home on the Bitcoin Blockchain.

A heartfelt thanks goes to the brilliant minds behind Cypherpunk Lab: Elocremarc and Nuropunk. This extraordinary page in the history of art and BTC was shaped thanks to the incredible effort and precious help of both, who dedicated their commitment with a spirit of friendship and profound vision. The unlimited file size protocol designed by Elocremarc made possible the existence of the largest, ever seen, CURSED video recorded on Bitcoin on a rare 2009 satoshi.

The collection Ordinals L.I.B.E.R.T.A.S. will consist of 630 handmade pieces utilizing the 1/1 Nova Libertas artwork layer. The artwork will be distributed to a deserving holder among the owners of the 630 pieces.

This page will be updated after the launch of the project.
