Chromie Squiggle Sets
Walk into the MoMa or Gugenheim, and you'll see meticulously organized art collections. The curator arranges the art pieces into sets, contextualizing the thematic goals of the exhibition. Seeing the work presented in new ways can highlight a timeline of the artist's output.
For instance, the Color Field paintings that defined Mark Rothko's career might be grouped in sets that present the vibrant color palettes featured in the earlier part of this period and thread through the subdued darker tones seen in the latter. Collectors could also feel compelled to group pieces based on the amount or proportion of the floating rectangles and even texture, width and length of his brushstrokes. The body of work can be weighed against itself. Curated sets allow this possibility.
SquiggleDAO is pleased to celebrate what we believe to be a defining experience for our community: set arrangements of Snowfro's Chromie Squiggle collection. Viewing complete combinations of normal, slinky, fuzzy, ribbed, bold, pipe and hyper Squiggles provides a complete perspective of the artist's algorithm.
Squiggles are personal. We are all inclined towards different color compositions and formations. A more dynamic set will pull color and form into new contexts. Arranging variations together creates an intimate experience that would otherwise not exist for a piece in isolation.
Chromie Squiggle sets showcase the full landscape, reflecting and heightening the rarity of each Squiggle included. For instance, at the current mint, only 757 enthusiast sets that contain a normal, slinky, fuzzy, and ribbed Squiggles can ever be compiled (today's floor price is 57 ETH)
You may come across one of only 181 possible collector's sets, featuring a normal, fuzzy, ribbed, bold and pipe Squiggles (current floor price of 120 ETH).
There can only be 126 full sets assembled that include one of each of the 7 normal, slinky, fuzzy, ribbed, bold, pipe, and hyper Squiggles (current floor price of 320 ETH).
Only 4 extremely rare Hyper sets that feature one of each hyper variant can ever be assembled (none are currently listed for sale) or 4 complete sets including each hyper variant along with a normal, slinky, fuzzy, ribbed, bold, pipe.
Rare Squiggle sets have piqued the interest of private collectors and institutions alike. Complete sets will become increasingly harder to assemble as Squiggles are snatched off the market and the collection reaches further distribution.
In the years to come Squiggles will change hands, sets will evolve, and innovative Squiggle exhibitions will continue to be featured throughout Metaverse on curatorial platforms like Deca.Art and in IRL galleries. With the MOMA planning to liquidate 70 million dollars of classical art work to acquire culturally significant NFTs, it won't be one Chromie Squiggle sitting on a lone wall: The finest collections in the world will create an immersive experience to showcase the depth and variations of the Chromie Squiggle.
Squiggle DAO continues to celebrate these defined sets, promoting the breadth of Erick Snowfro's work. We will be recognizing collectors that highlight these complexities and hidden rarities on Deca.Art every Squiggle Saturday .
