The Intersection Between Computers and Humans Inspire Rudxane NFTs
Learn more about the creator behind rings(∞), Tych, Disrupt, "unfinished" and more...
I was drawn to Rudxane work when I first saw his rings(∞) collection on FxHash. He masterfully played with math and lines to generate special ring effects. Each piece was minted for just 0.25 Tezos, less than $1, and the collection has commanded over 3k Tezos (~$12k) in total volume. He is a software developer who finds inspiration in the intersection between computers and humans and usually takes simple phrases or themes to guide his abstract compositions.
How did you discover NFTs?
Started playing with NFTs around 2018 (Cryptokitties) for a short period and came back in summer 2021 again.
The artist was minting very early in the FxHash generative marketplace. So early that his Bingo collection was the 5th ever minted series.
“Bingo is a series of 500 randomly generated "bingo" cards. Language unknown.”
What inspired your first collection, Bingo?
Bingo was an outtake of the main series I was working on back then, not knowing where to release it which ended up as Tych. Bingo is a single variation of "doodles" in a smaller format and different aspect ratios.
Each grid block gets assigned a random color, a visibility switch and hidden value, deciding if they are shown as black, color or hidden all together.

Can you tell me a bit about your creation process?
I'm interested in the intersection between computers and humans. What makes a piece human-generated or computer-generated. What is the difference between the two of these.
Tych is an exploration between these two using core concepts from both; computer (grids and repetition) and human (misalignment and inconsistency).
Tych is an attempt to bring personality to a generative system. It combines grids, multiple variations, and palettes. Rudxane made a gallery that explains the design and meaning behind it.
Who are your favorite NFT artists, and why?
dhof: on-chain experimentation, storytelling.
Matt DesLauriers: amazing work and doing active research to the wider crypto ecosystem
Nicolas Sassoon: complex simplicity and amazing use of color
When talking about how he approaches projects (his creative mindset), Rudxane defines two clear groups.
My projects are sort of divided into two elements, more serious projects, and experiments.
Rings(), loop, and bingo for example use the full-color spectrum without boundaries. These are more plays on infinite color variations on a simple structure. While tych, disrupt, and unfinished are more curated to a concept with defined color palettes.
Right now, he is interested in the story behind Gee’s Bend. He said he is exploring some of these patterns but isn’t sure how this exploration will turn out.
