Third Year Projects

Ankit Singh Fit JPEGs

NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) have recently become popular as a way for artists to sell their work. The market for NFTs, a form of a collectable and verifiable file, has only been growing. Usually, they are a part of a collection, such as the popular Bored Ape Yacht Club, Doodles, Punks etc. With this project, entitled Fit JPEGs, I aimed to comment on NFT collections by creating a collection of my wardrobe. Most collections have a singular motif, in the case of Bored Ape Yacht Club, the Ape is the motif while the background and its accessories are the variables. I decided to create a catalogue of my wardrobe, using my body as the motif and my clothes as the variables. I used a neutral white background to keep the project neutral and consistent. On a personal level, I use this project to look at the identity I have associated with my clothes and the perception of an individual based on their outfit.
