Meridian Prints (Signed, Token-Limited)

On September 28, 2021, I released Meridian, a generative art project hosted on the Ethereum blockchain, with 1,000 editions distributed to collectors through ArtBlocks.io.

If you currently own one of the minted 1,000 Meridian tokens, and can prove wallet ownership, you are eligible to purchase a limited edition, archival-quality print signed and dated by the artist, corresponding to the token # that you own.

Note: If you do not own a Meridian token, but would like a print, or if you'd like a less bespoke printing service, see Open Edition Prints.

Print Details

These are inkjet printed on archival quality 100% cotton paper. Larger sizes will include an additional unprinted margin beyond the coloured border, which can help prevent frayed edges during transport. You can optionally trim this edge off while framing.

The paper has a matte and smooth finish, a subtle texture, and produces vivid hues and deep blacks. The prints are signed and dated by the artist in pigment pen—either white, silver, or black, whichever produces the best contrast with the background colour of your particular Meridian token. The prints will be shipped unframed and tube-rolled. I suggest a thin, minimal frame in black, white, maple, or walnut, depending on your Meridian colours, and framing flush to the edge of the paper (no additional window matte).

A Note on Token Ownership

If you sell or give away your Meridian token; the new owner of the token will then be eligible to purchase a print as well. Since Meridian is a digital-first project, and provenance is tied specifically to the token, rather than the physical artefact, I have decided to take this limited and token-ownership approach, rather than attempting to tie each token to a unique and single edition print.
