Polish Artist uses Codenotary

We’re excited to share the news that we support Aleksandra Jozefow, a sculptor from Poland. From now on, all of her artworks will be immutably authenticated using Codenotary, so that everyone can verify the certificate and the origin.

Aleksandra Jozefow, Gdansk (Poland) based Sculptor

The year is 2021 and the Fourth Industrial Revolution is in full swing.

Within the European Artistic community, there is a growing sense that, across artistic disciplines, dramatic events are unfolding; that ultimately, only the artists who will have understood the importance of the fourth industrial revolution’s technological stack, and will have done something about it, will remain relevant.

Artists, clinging to Traditionalism (as can be shown, for example, by their very vocal opposition to Non-Fungible Tokens) are hesitant to fully embrace Industry 4.0.

As a sculptor, I have been looking for creative ways to integrate a very promising Industry 4.0 technology in my workflow: Blockchain Technology.

When a sculpture is completed and sold, a paper-based certificate of authenticity is issued by me and given to the buyer. This certificate states that only one copy of this work exists, that it is authentic.

But, I thought, don’t Blockchain or similar technologies provide a better way to do this? Why not authenticate sculptures cryptographically from everywhere in the world?

As soon as I saw and tried Codenotary‘s solution, I understood this was a powerful tool, and one I wanted to integrate in my workflow.

A sculpture’s characteristics such as: name, materials used, year, specifications such as size and weight, etc. can be stored tamperproof thanks to Codenotary’s CLI tool and within a few minutes, all of this information can be viewed and shared with customers, curators and collectors around the world and its authenticity is cryptographically verifiable.

Using Codenotary was truly eye-opening for me.

Not only does it drastically reduce my paper-trail, but this information about my works, stored in an immutable platform, can be easily queried and leveraged by applications. My current focus is to build – with some help! – simple, proprietary applications that will leverage this information, applications that will be used in the context of exhibitions.
