LVGA/XY ASTRO FLOWERS is a street artwork conceived by Yuri Catania, set to debut at the NFT Festival in Lugano from August 30 to September 10, 2023, made possible with the support of Lugano Living Lab. Catania's work aims to juxtapose the provocative interplay of nature and technology. With the backdrop of NFT Fest at Villa Ciani, he delves into pivotal themes of the moment: WEB 3.0, Blockchain's role in art, cryptocurrencies, the metaverse, and more. Catania seeks to harmonize these concepts with the breathtaking natural beauty of Parco Ciani. The project unfolds through nighttime photographs of plants and flowers from the park, captured specifically by Catania. These serve as the setting for his astronauts, symbolizing the modern-day heroes tasked with steering humanity through space via technology and science. Their mission: to ensure the future of life on our planet through a harmonious interplay with nature."
