Edition 1/1

About the Artwork

Mertie File Expander is a discontinued ‘file-expansion’ spambot. As things were inserted into the letter box on her front, Mertie would return objects at twice the size. However, users reported the discovery of strange and disturbing ‘Easter Eggs’ while using the Mertie algorithm. The app was later removed. The purpose of Mertie remains unknown.

Now featured in this holographic, ‘single edition’ collectible card, from the animated short film Top 5 Animation Containers by Ben Wheele Using CGI animation, Wheele constructs a fantastical world of sinister creatures and digital hybrids available for your ownership. The collection attempts to reinterpret the sparkling, holographic nostalgia of 80s-90s trading cards. Each artwork is hand-crafted at 2000 x 2000px and 150 frames, and is released as a unique single-edition NFT.
