Luminous Rex presents a collection of crypto shard art objects. Each piece contains an embedded CRYPTICK device for digital signature authentication (DSA) protection, and is linked to a unique NFT on the Ethereum blockchain.
The owner of the piece also owns the associated NFT, which is transferred to the owner's crypto wallet (ie Metamask). The owner can authenticate the art piece by connecting the embedded CRYPTICK to their PC or Mac by USB-C cable, and running the CRYPTICK authenticator app.
By authenticating, the owner can show that the physical art piece matches the NFT, and show ownership and authenticity of the piece as an added layer of physical security.

Luminous Rex is a project by artist/engineer Erik Bakke. Beauty is found in natural materials and the entropic physical forces of nature: oxidation, erosion, decomposition, the passage of time. Steel, wood, and concrete help to tell this story. The juxtaposition of these physical materials and digital technology provide a bridge linking these two worlds.
The crypto shards collection represents a body of work created between 2005-2021.
