[APPROVED] Science fiction short story to be presented in 3XR

Hello all,

I have been thinking about ways to expand how literature is consumed in the metaverse.

My pratice is pretty much aligned with traditional linear narrative formats, and I see this as an opportunity to explore new ways of working and creating both experimental textual content and experimental reading experiences.

I propose to:

  • create 1 non-linear science fiction short story.

  • use an 3xr.space gallery to showcase a fragmented narrative.

  • create a strategy to both allow for anyone to read it but also to collect it.

  • explore how can a fragmented story be collected without influencing non-linearity.

To do this, I am planning on creating 2 different galleries.

  • 1 for showcasing the fragmented texts (individual NFTs), shown as moving images.

  • 1, as a permanent NFT-gallery, allowing for those who have bought 1 of the NFTs to revisit the full text in a non-linear form. Each NFT will work as thicket for this second NFT gallery. This allows for collecting parts of the text, and also the full text.

In order to achieve this, I ask for:

  • 1000$ from the VR DAO, to create the short story, to explore the technical component, create the stores and mint every NFT.
  • I ask this value in 4 parts of 250$ each; December, January, February, March.

The project will be developed during the first 3 months and showcased in March.

Every NFT will have a split between myself and VR DAO.

Thank you for your attention,

Hey ! Nice idea.

It could be great if we could work on a science fiction story where the NFT cards are part of a game.

Like with galaxyonline.io

So we will have characters like this one, but in this case they are part of a story !

How it sounds ?

Hey!

Sounds awesome and definetly that is the next step for an entire range of literary content. It would be awesome if we expand the kind of artists we have floating around here (right now it’s mostly visual artists and musicians)…

My work is quite traditional in that sense, though, so let’s see how I do find ways to explore this technology.

My true hope is that my experiment brings in more writers to the NEAR ecosystem. Not only sci-fi writers, but all kinds of writers.

cheers!

Hello everyone,

I have decided to put this proposal on hold, since 1/2 of the proposal can’t be supported in the month of December, by Incubadora DAO.

I will request again when the time is right.

Thanks

hey @frnvpr I know that your proposal was partially put on hold by Incubadora DAO, but I really think this idea can be a good contribution to the VR DAO and the community. It is a really fresh and interesting project, opening up the door for collabs as suggested by FritzWorm above.

My suggestion is that you could adapt your proposals to be funded partially now and partially in the next months, to fit VR DAO budget.

I’ll edit this proposal back to [PROPOSAL] and I look forward to your project adaptation/edit.

I see a lot of potencial in @frnvpr idea! And I think it makes sense for the VR DAO to get involved due to the connection to 3xr.space.
I support @JulianaM suggestion.
