If Cyberpunk 2077 Took Place in a USSR of the Future
The collection was inspired by the plot of the legendary video game Cyberpunk 2077 and presents the artist’s interpretation of the plot if the events had taken place in some futuristic USSR. In this alternative version of reality created by Dmitry human culture falls into decline under an onslaught of technological progress. More specifically, the pieces in the collection depict the rise of underground medicine and the body modification industry.
USSR citizens are trying to keep up with modern innovations, installing cyber implants and prostheses. But while the tech industry has made a huge leap forward, society is suffering from an unprecedented degree of inequality. Healthcare has become a luxury, only accessible to the upper classes. Lack of alternatives has driven the general population underground, literally and metaphorically speaking, undergoing illegal operations and trusting their well-being to underground cyber surgeons.
The collection consists of 3 works of art: “Cyberpunk USSR”, “Cyberpunk Russia” and “Cyberpunk Surgeon”. All three works will go live on the NFT STARS marketplace on 12th August at 10:00 UTC. “Cyberpunk USSR” is a collage highlighting every little aspect of underground cyberware installation surgery. The artwork will be sold at auction with a starting price of 0.9 ETH. “Cyberpunk Russia” and “Cyberpunk Surgeon” will be sold in a drop that comprises 10 replica copies of each artwork, each costing 0.1 ETH.
