Oh my god, or oh my data? Remember when online banking, shopping and social networking without physical substance were considered something for computer nerds? Today we are surrounded by apps, QR codes and GPS navigators and become neurotic controllers of social networks. Exploding amounts of data and with it data-driven decisions have already rolled over our lives like a tsunami, and the process of digitalisation is fundamentally changing our lives.

Metaverse and NFTs are currently making headlines. Paintings, drawings, music and even your DNA can be digitised. While the crypto art communities are growing stronger, the chaos in the scene is also growing at the same time. There is hardly any evaluation of the quality of artworks on platforms. Crypto-art is still in its early stages and in a chaotic state.

With the OH MY DATA project, the artists:inside try to introduce another level of digital and crypto art. It is not only about heaps of pixels, but also about a metaphysical category in real and digital worlds that reveals philosophy, technology, feminism, etc. in our time.
Some of the works exhibited will be converted into NFTs. The project’s partner, The Digital Renaissance, will help the participating artists to create, perhaps in some cases, their first NFTs.
The entire front space facing the street will be transformed into a digital sphere where people can physically experience the digital works. The multidisciplinary media such as videos, data images and objects will be shown in the back space. The OH MY DADA experiment tries to show the different scale of digital and cryptic art in the real and digital world.
