Corrupted Scream

Corrupted Scream

Following the success of the Silver Scream - a limited series of 10 oxidised sterling silver pieces that have now sold out, including one sold at auction at Christie's on 11 June 2024 - Asprey Studio is pleased to announce the digital variations with optional physical prints of Munch's masterpiece.

If oxidisation in the Silver Scream represented a controlled destructive physical process, the Corrupted Scream takes this concept into the digital realm. This piece was created by corrupting the digital file. Mirroring the aging of silver in a digital format, this process results in another interpretation of the “corrupted soul” of our modern society.  

As Walker explains, "Digital art is usually very clean and crisp. Focusing on the central theme of angst, I took the binary version and digitally 'destroyed' the file, which creates a unique look and texture." 

Each digital Ordinal artwork comes with an optional large giclée print and is priced at 0.01 btc (~650 USD). Prints are available only for one month after release. Each physical piece is linked to a digital artwork inscribed on Ordinals, connected to the original lithograph and Asprey Studio’s version using parent-child inscription, pioneering a new method to trace provenance of the physical and digital piece.
