What is this?
Solvency is a limited edition series of WebGL artworks created by Ezra Miller. Each artwork is a unique, generative NFT, it's attributes determined based on randomly seeded values generated by the token hash of the NFT. Every NFT is hosted permanently on the web and Arweave.
Each NFT minted with the Solvency contract is completely unique, and is randomly generated at the time of minting, using a determinstic algorithm seeded with the hash of the token. Therefore, these pieces can only exist the moment they're minted. Some tokens contain combinations of textures and forms that occur less frequently than others.
How is the data stored?
The data is stored both on HTTP and Arweave, a blockchain for permanently archiving data. Each Solvency piece directly links to its location on Arweave's blockchain via the "View on Arweave" link next to the viewer.
What is the best way to view the work?
The best way to view each piece is by viewing on a desktop computer. Each piece runs complex WebGL shaders that require more computing power than a normal website, so it's reccomended to use a modern computer with a decent graphics card.
This piece leverages experimental features of WebGL 2. As of 2021, WebGL 2 mobile support is still limited, and doesn't include support for floating point render targets, so for now these pieces only work on desktop. Hopefully in the future this will change.
