In 2021, BarabásiLab released Invasion Percolation as a generative NFT on ArtBlocks part of a hybrid performance involving the metaverse and the traditional gallery and museum space. Each generated copy of the series were printed and each printed work’s title, permanently recorded on the physical artwork, is the NFT owner who generated the work. In rare instances, the algorithm generated sculptures that are also 3D printed. The 2D and 3D prints were shown at the Cyberart Gallery in Boston, Postmaster Gallery in New York, Ludwig Museum in Budapest (Hungary), and New Kriterion Gallery in Csikszereda (Transylvania, Romania), each location receiving unique artworks. With the release of Invasion Percolation as a generative NFT, empty exhibition spaces will gradually fill in thanks to the actions of the collectors, who generate and name the work.
