HOLY TACO X DIE GOLDENE INGE
Inge’s roadmap is full of exciting developments and announcements for the upcoming months. From NFT drops to live and virtual exhibitions, Inge is proud to present her Agenda for 2022.
/// BULLETPOINT ROADMAP
/// INGE WHO?
Die Goldene Inge is a German based photographer and NFT artist you probably never heard of. Inge’s mission is to change that!
Die Goldene Inge is about realness, joy, passion, and dedication – without smoke, or mirrors. With her golden force, Inge creates vivid miniatures of her reality to present a colorful interpretation of contemporary photography.
Inge can see the beauty in everything. Any moment, place or situation may be worth noticing. Die Goldene Inge aims to look for the most real of them and pixelates them for eternity.
Die Goldene Inge is inspired by a multitude of things. Inge loves to travel as much as possible. Seeing new places and meeting new people are fueling her mind, body and soul. That is where Inge can truly open up and soak in the spirits of the foreign territory to broaden her horizons and sharpen her perspectives.
Inge’s current portfolio is a small representation of her photographic work of the past two decades. Inge has always used art as a channel to express herself. She worked with different styles, materials and techniques. But in the end, the camera has always been a preferred tool to capture and express emotions and moments important to her.
It all started with a love for streets, the origin of most of Inge’s work. But over the time Inge felt the need to put a focus on the protagonists and give them a centerstage in her work. So over the past two years, Inge has concentrated mainly on studio work and evolved her techniques, creating her interpretation of contemporary portraiture.
The Pretty Pop Poser Portrait series is the result of an intense and joyful ride on the one hand and the beginning of Inge’s NFT journey on the other.
As 2022 is all about NFTs, Die Goldene Inge has been continuously advancing her works in the past months to adapt her style to the new medium. The current Saturation Supernova Series are the output of an intense transition phase and are just a first glimpse of Inge’s interpretation of her visual future.
Her Interplanetary collections The Späti, The Urbanity, The Underground, La Pompa or The Saturation SuperCrew are Inge’s base to take off into what looks to become a fantastic year.
Inge has of course several ambitious visions. Goals of what she would love to artistically achieve in the foreseeable future. But Inge is realistic enough to plan one step at a time. Rather under-promise and over-deliver than waking expectations she cannot meet.
/// ALL ABOUT THE HYPE
The current NFT space sadly seems to be only and all about the hype. NFT collections are promoted as if they were some rare Supreme drops. A lot of really incredible work though! But can or will that all be sustainable? Will you care about them in some month time, will you even remember?
Gary Vee rightfully pointed out, that 98% plus of current NFT highflyers will hit zero sooner or later. Why? Without a true long-term approach and people who personally stand behind the product, everything is nothing.
Die Goldene Inge surely is not about the hype. How could she. Inge always has and always will be in for the long-run. She’s done it for years. Just like Nipsey said, the marathon continues. She is in for the craftsmanship, the passion and dedication that are necessary to produce personal pieces of art. One at a time, and not generic, AI-produced pseudo-rarities, that are rather one of a thousand.
Every single one of Inge’s pieces is done with passion, dedication and personality.
So don’t believe the Hype and see the world with Inge’s eyes!
/// META WHAT?
Everybody is talking about the metaverse and the fancy things we all will be doing in the virtual world. All nothing new. But with the advancing technologies, a vision that is surely closer than we all imagined not too long ago.
Die Goldene Inge has of course also aspirations of how to transform her work into the interplanetary space. Her virtual galleries e.g. are already an awesome tool to present her work to an international audience. And there is currently so much development in this field that it is truly mindboggling.
Virtual spaces have the capacity to really change how we meet, interact and exchange. It gives us the possibility to broaden our horizon and connect with individuals without boundaries in place and time. The pandemic surely has acted as an accelerator and has clearly shown the necessity for an infrastructure to meet digitally when you cannot meet physically.
Therefore Inge’s long-term vision is to shape and build her own virtual space where alike minded people can share work, views and visions in an interplanetary community. Surely a long path to walk and accomplish, but what is life without ambitious goals 😉
But first and for all it’s about the art, the joy to produce amazing work and to share it with the world. One step at a time. Rather than promising blooming landscapes and delivering deserted spaces, Inge wants to steadily build her base, advance processes and technologies and see where the path may lead her.
/// SATURATION SUPERNOVA
When closing her eyes, contemplating about NFTs and the metaverse, Die Goldene Inge sees a vibrant and positive place. Inge calls it SATURATION SUPERNOVA – an interplanetary space that is just as colorful as Inge’s world and that stands for diversity and acceptance of all lifeforms.
In the Saturation Supernova, the borders of origin and distinction blur into insignificance and migrate into their own interplanetary existence. As everything evolved from the same stardust, actors are only judged by the way they treat each other. Humanity, empathy and the mindset that we are all equal are the key to get in.
People and places in the Saturation Supernova are characterized by the 360 degree color-spectrum they exist in. An ever revolving rainbow, providing a captivating vitality.
The current state of the Saturation Supernova is represented in Inge’s latest Interplanetary NFT collections: The Späti, The Urbanity, The Underground, La Pompa or The Saturation SuperCrew. These NFTs are the canvas and foundation for the Saturation Supernova to build upon.
/// LETS GET PHYSICAL
One thing is for sure. No matter how nice and tempting the virtual world with all its digital assets and amenities may be. If we lose the understanding for the amazingness of our world, if we lose the touch to nature, or if we stop interacting with real people in the real world, using our senses and instincts, we are all doomed to a loveless existence in a lifeless digital environment.
It is therefore one of Inge’s most important post-pandemic ambitions to go out, meet and greet people, and show her art not only in the digital world but also in physical spaces again.
So besides her online hustle, Inge will relentlessly seek for further occasions to show her art in public. It’s in a physical space, amongst real spectators, where art becomes important and an active part of our cultural and historical society.
/// ROADMAP 2022
Inge can hardly believe that after almost two years of pandemic half stepping, the restrictions seem to finally come to an end. So much that had to wait, so much that wants to come out. Therefore Inge is happy to announce her first milestones for 2022.
