Unique digital works of art
Porsche’s new project in the field of digital art is realized by the Hamburg-based designer and 3D artist Patrick Vogel In his studio ALT/SHIFT, the former architect is creating an impressive visual language for various applications. For Porsche, he designs digital portraits that center around a white Porsche 911.
Buyers can influence the design of their individual NFTs in a collaborative and immersive journey lasting several months. To do so, they can choose from three core themes of the Porsche brand and integrate them onto the artwork according to their personal preferences. The Performance, Heritage and Lifestyle routes will influence the appearance and character of the digital collectibles. Owners then have access to their individual collector’s items in the virtual world, with each being created by the Unreal Engine 5.
“The NFT artworks enable us to take our understanding of modern luxury and the unique brand positioning of Porsche into the digital world,” said Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing. Owners of the Porsche NFTs gain exclusive access to experiences in the virtual and real world. Digital pioneers can, for one, participate directly in Porsche’s journey into the world of Web3 and enter into a dialogue with the brand.
“Porsche has longstanding links to the creative arts and we’re excited to take this next step at Art Basel in launching a beautiful, and of course unique, set of NFTs to allow private ownership of a piece of Porsche art. We’re excited for the launch in Miami, and to witness the work of the NFT owners as their bespoke artwork develops over the course of the coming months,” said Kjell Gruner, President and CEO Porsche Cars North America, Inc.
