    If Cyberpunk 2077 took place in a future Soviet Union

    The series is inspired by the plot of the legendary video game Cyberpunk 2077 and shows the artist’s interpretation of that plot if the events were to take place in some future Soviet Union. In this alternate version of reality created by Dmitry, human culture is in decline under the impact of technological advances. More specifically, the group depicts the rise of an underground medical and body modification industry.

    Soviet citizens are struggling to keep up with modern innovations, fitting cyber implants and prosthetics. But while the technology industry has made great leaps forward, society suffers from unprecedented inequality. Healthcare had become a luxury, accessible only to the upper classes. Lacking alternatives, the general population has gone underground, both literally and metaphorically, to undergo illegal surgeries and entrust their health to underground cyber-surgeons.

    The series includes three works of art.” Cyberpunk USSR, Cyberpunk Russia, and Cyberpunk Surgeon. All three pieces will go live on the NFT STARS Marketplace on August 12 at 10:00 UTC. Cyberpunk USSR is a collage highlighting every little aspect of underground cyberware installation surgery. It will be auctioned off with a starting bid of 0.9 ETH. ‘Cyberpunk Russia ‘ and ‘Cyberpunk Surgeon’ will be sold as 10 copies of each piece at 0.1 ETH each.
