Kraken, one of the first and most respected cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, has been committed to helping millions of people from all walks of life chart a new course toward financial freedom and independence through the use of crypto and digital assets.
United by the shared belief in the power of crypto and digital assets to change the world, Kraken asked Tina Touli and James Dawe, along with 14 more of the world’s best digital creators to share their own visions of the future.
Going or coming? Moving forward or backwards? Where do you want to go? Lost between reality and imagination. Life as a game. Your body is stuck in a physical space but your mind is still traveling. An inner self endoscopy. Looking at the past while the future is already here. You set your rules, you play the game, you create your future. — Tina Touli
Overall, I wanted to portray a bold and vibrant image of the future using CGI and digital illustration to bring my vision to life. A colourful organism made of reinforced tendrils. Powered by Artificial Intelligence, guiding it across a turbulent futurescape. This mass of wiriness appears from a metallic cocoon that also acts as a charging doc. The floating bubbles are futurist living pods, resembling scattered apart(ical)ments. — James Dawe
