A striking composition emerges as a large, meticulously arranged bouquet rotates against a gradient-fade grey backdrop. This artwork is part of the expansive series titled Out-Game Flowers, where each bouquet stands as a unique creation adorned with flowers sourced from iconic video games. The digital bouquets within the Out-Game Flowers series are crafted using blooms selected from the virtual landscapes of the world's most renowned video games, such as The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Minecraft, and many others. Magid embarked on a virtual journey through these beloved digital realms, carefully plucking stems from each pixelated environment to arrange them as NFTs. Within their respective virtual realms, these blossoms, ranging from pixelated plants to exquisitely detailed photo-realistic flowers, hold significance beyond their visual appeal. They are intrinsically linked to intricate in-game economies that drive their value, both within the gaming world and beyond. Magid's artworks delve into the multifaceted realm of blockchain technology, exploring its connection to artistic creation. Moreover, they invite contemplation on copyright issues, the concept of ownership, and the convergence of emotional, symbolic, and financial values within the online landscape.
