Exploring the relationship between past, present & future. Simpler Times is a collection of digital works that takes scans of classic sculptures and condenses them down to their raw geometric form. These abstract polygonal figures from the past are transported through time united under contemporary themes and placed in futuristic environments. Simpler Times is an ongoing series that spans four and a half years. Works from the series were Hawthorne’s first to mint on the blockchain in January of this year on MP and will also be his last to mint, dropping Thursday 12/16.
