mint on Mintbase DECEMBER 2022
at march 2022 I can update the #CICATRICIEBACI TERRITORY SCARS as the follow:
- tested the territory scar workflow with TRASFORMATORIO LAB as you can read in the following links to my Cent Blog posts (-> RECEIVED 25 NEAR after this article)
- due to covid situation converted all the imagined on site steps into a virtual space expirience here descripted, and on video recorded:
- minted n° NFT on Mintbase Trasformatorio Store and wrote the final Cent Blog Post:
STORE NFT are audiovisual some with text attached
(step completed, I can ask for the 25 NEAR left of the 50 approved)
I BREAK DOWN THE PROCESS IN 3 STEP,
at the reaching of each step I WILL WRITE A BLOG POST ON CENT about results for Createbase founding:
- collecting, preparing, translating and minting 17 (visual+written) NFT on Mintbase + onboarding writers into crypto through Mintbase and NEAR → CENT POST → 50 NEAR
- selling the NFT BOOK as NFT on Mintbase + online auction + 5 interwiew for highlight the process and the new options of book sold trough onchain contracts → CENT POST → 50 NEAR
- entering the “on the road” and TERRITORY SCARS phase by the TRASFORMATORIO LAB 2021 process → CENT POST → 50 NEAR (finished, received 25NEAR for the first article)
#cicatriciebaci (scarkisses) is an interactive project that generates portraits of scars, and want to become an environment for validation of unique and personal healing processes on various levels; collected through storytelling interactions, elaborated in focused conversations and played in alchemic staging, then expressed through art medium, first of all photography and video; this is the basic process. (here some testimonials 2)
Started in 2018 and entered crypto on early 2019 in his visual basic process → CONSOLIDATED
Right now we are ready to enter new phase of written narrative, the story is evolving and changing each step forward, so after participating to the basic process each person (the story givers) have now the occasion to rewrite it as they like, and if not, to gift to a writer their portraits, like in the call for writer example on Cent Blog.
I am just playing as the observer in Quantum physics, trying to look at what etheric form of the story needs to manifest, taking care of the chain reaction, owning the artistic responsibility builded in the relationship with who decide to play #scarkisses with me.
From the basic process generates tree branches:
re-writing the story after gone through the photographic portrait
participating in workshops where I guide you to be your artist/observer/narrator
highlight territory scars and work in group, with performances and theater (now, april, in a process with TRASFORMATORIO LAB 2021 to test and develop this part, link in comments.
resume of the project divided in step:
In 2018 started the project, 2019 minted on SuperRare (29 people x 3 artwork each, sometimes 4) and 2020 minted on EPHIMERA (4 people x 3 artwork each), from late 2018 till now I worked with 31 people and working now with other 2 so I can say I the process is now solid and I experienced crypto space since late 2018
I choosed not to develope further on SuperRare and EPHIMERA cause I feel much more in line with NEAR ecosystem and in the Mintbase NEAR platform that I tested, and in Creatives DAO, the groups are excellent and I share the vision.
About the BOOK: #cicatriciebaci project is experiential, through experience I realized that the stories of people changes after the photographic set, there the story participants shared privately with me take the courage and right way to be expressed, the willingness to write about their story is a need that emerged very strong in some participants, while many observer of artworks where asking for a more detailed description of the story behind it, so i decided was time to forward through this step.
I did a first call and collected some writings, in different languages, but unfortunately in this phase not many early participants answered, they expressed the willingness to hear story of other based on their pictures so I decided to drop the phase of call them back to make a new photo shooting for the book, anyway the story keeps on evolving, remorphing and reshaping inside the participants and new writers, so they just need the container to express and my action to make it happen.
On the road of this project I met a friend and we founded a new project that is consolidating on Mintbase, and this is creating a whole new bounch of opportunities, even if apparently slowed down my proposal last year, but check, is Cosmia.
I will also provide some articles that explain the alchemical process that is taking place and I am still observing. I have built that project as a recipient so I am …adding ingredients
About the TERRITORY SCARS: #cicatriciebaci on the road, follows the same mechanism as above but focusing on groups and community healing processes for people or for the territory itself.
I am creating a net of contacts worldwide to start a period of travel with the project, since presence is needed to experience the process at the best, let say one exaple: Chernobyl (I already traveled to Ukaina and have photo and video) or heartquakes (es in Italy, near me), Fukiushima… wars, etc… we are plenty and I am sure this part of the project will be the best deployed by CONNECTING WITH ORGANIZATIONS that already are working on healt or social care, sustainability, or art residences, by offering a container for expressing the untold or exorcise what is left through art, shake it out!
Since this part is going to be long and not yet fully planned I can say that my first travel will probably be in Italy since I have many contact there, my esteem is to have 22 people ready, but I need to travel to them, in Friuli, Tuscany, Campania, Puglia.
How this project is contributing to the NEAR ecosystem?
My project is highly participative and since the beginning I dreamed to share with participants the adventure by sharing revenues in crypto, rewarding participation automatically when I realize profits.
Your ecosystems provide me the right tools for that, and this will bring new people to crypto through NEAR Mintbase platform, 80% of partecipant do not have crypto, but they start to be interested now. (onboarded till now 19 people, but still need to explain to writers)
Is also collaborative between artists (some participants are artists from crypto and the whole process takes the shape of an art collaboration) and in such cases I can open for them a window on your whole ecosystem,
My project is in continue development, but Mintbase is the only platform I tested that allow me to move in with the entire project, as said before #cicatriciebaci is a container that allow processes, so it is for me your platform and ecosystem.
That allows me to use its full potential, expecially now that I am visualizing different possibility on how to sell the phisical book through NFT transactions only (or find a good deal in between) and I am open to new collaborative ideas or tests in this direction.
I see many resources in NEAR community, a lot of people that I would like to collaborate with, for TRANSLATION and PUBLISHING THE BOOK in primis, and lately I have seen many virtual spaces come into the chat that will be the best to use for EXIBITIONS, TALK, EVENTS, and the Arroz space, that would be a perfect place to start the “on the road” part…
Last but not least I am feeling good since I landed into Createbase, following trusted friends and the flow for defining my needs, artistic and emotional.
