I’m not entirely sure. But, I am positive. Looking back, people always talk shit about every new art movement. Look at Andy Warhol, everyone just said, “What the fuck is that?” But now his works are classic and, if anything, you almost see them too much. I think the metaverse will be huge.
The internet has helped us a lot, even right now having this interview. This wouldn’t have been possible 20 years ago, an overseas call would be too expensive, especially a face-to-face video, and the metaverse will be the next level. We’ll feel even closer to people on the other side of the world.
But everything in this new world still needs to be created, just like we had to build apps and websites for the internet. It will be much more visual than the internet right now, with augmented reality. Some companies already have contact lenses that let you see AR, I think in 10 years things like that will be normal, you’ll need your VR avatar or whatever, but all these things still need to be created, and that includes art.
