The Astronaut has become one of the most pervasive memes of NFT art today. In Marks’ body of work, the “Astro" has become an allegorical figure, representing anonymity and exploration in newly discovered dimensions. This work depicts the Astro floating, as if in an almost pupae or fetal state. The throbbing, garish lexicon of the sub culture pulsates around the figure. Halfway through the piece a chaotic disruption tears at the digital fabric and builds a new super-imposed reality - a second layer. A tranquil, evolved hint at the sublime. This process reflects the constantly evolving ecosystem that crypto art represents. An almost infinitely complicated cultural structure is starting to take form - at first rough, brash and in its early stages of formation - it will over time mutate and transform into something unrecognizable to us today.
