Lunu Art Link
Laurent Grasso’s design - ”Natural Connection” - features point cloud imagery that depicts two trees connected underground by the mycorrhizal fungal network that allows plants all over the world to share life-giving nutrients including water, carbon, and hydrogen.
Grasso’s unique artwork was inspired by images of blockchain connectivity maps and Lunu’s brand vision of global interconnectivity, facilitated by blockchain’s distributive network of links in which every component relies on another. The artist rendered two trees as a technical scan from top to bottom, including the roots. Each tree has its own independent nexus of branches and leaves above ground. Underground, the image reveals another network - one that links both trees - revealing their connection and interdependence. It also underscores the realisation that technology is part of nature, fully integrated into our daily lives, while rejecting the long-established nature/culture divide at a macro level.
“Aesthetically, we wanted to keep a scientific aspect to express the idea of a “network” in biological terms — to show that technology is truly becoming part of our nature not only through extensions such as phones and computers, but in the processes and protocols we follow throughout our lives, ” says artist Laurent Grasso.
The collection can be purchased only using cryptocurrency through our innovative payment systems and is available only through the Lunu online shop and at events in which Lunu participates.
