Multi-faceted artist Harm van den Dorpel has been at the forefront of blockchain-based art since 2015 […] For Maschine, Harm has chosen movement, speed and perception as his main themes. Each of the 1,000 unique artworks represents a fascinating radial pattern of complex, ever-changing illusions that occur when certain objects rotate and accelerate,” explained Mercedes-Benz NXT.
We also learn that Gorden WagenerMercedes-Benz design director since 2016, worked closely with Harm van den Dorpel.
