“We have seen powerful developments in the art and technology ecosystem over these past few years, with NFT’s being front and center. As Lumen has always endeavored to provide the best opportunities for artists working with technology, we are excited about the potential of the NFT medium to provide greater autonomy to artists and push innovation in the art world forwards. In our inaugural NFT Collection, the Lumen team is delighted to be working with Known Origin.” – Carla Rappoport, Founder and Executive Director of Lumen 

“We strive to bring the highest quality art to the KnownOrigin platform, whilst maintaining our values of artist empowerment and innovation. Lumen ticks all of these boxes for us. They are an organisation that attracts the highest level of artistry, which often pushes the boundaries of innovation; and the Lumen Prize and organisation in general, share the common goal of empowering the artists that they work with.” – Mecquel B, Known Origin
