Nico founded TheDArtCo. He is a Digital Native and has a vagabond soul. When the world locked down he became a Digital Artist to generate a world for a wanderer like him, where globalization could not get him. He knows that the Consensus Adepts are after him, but in the Metaverse they cannot catch him.
The Iphone is my digital eye
Walking around the streets
The music in my headphones
I used to steal images of the life that was flowing around me
But now the world has changed
Fear of the others and fear of loneliness
Are struggling in my mind
I am looking for people
But masked faces keep me far away
Only in the digital space I can find peace
Artworks are the voodoos that will ease my mind
Nine lines poem
All my life long, I had to go night life to damp my loneliness
Daytime I had to live the city, not to be melting in the crowd under the heat of the daylight
Now I walk around the city, night and day, to meet people to touch
But I cannot find, I cannot find, I cannot find….
A mask on my face, a mask on their face: we are all but walled people
Not even handshaking anymore
Nowhere to go to meet someone free
Only this city to walk, cannot escape anywhere
Roads and monuments all empty
A place of my own
Milano, London, NY, HK, Shanghai, Tokyo: the globalized world killed the genius loci. Wherever you go you find the same stuff: fashion, food, art in the museums, all is the same.
I need to rush to the digital world to create my place, my feeling, my view that is not global.
It has to be local and my own.
Living in a non-global world means loving each other for his own culture and tradition.
Do not become like me, I will not become like you.
See my world and teach me how to love your world.
