I am a current Central Saint Martins MA student who is working in the emerging phygital space, bringing natural objects to digital realms in an effort to bring public awareness to environmental issues and make a positive physical change. My mission is to bring the creative community together to heal the earth, and I begin by establishing my personal vision for art in the era of web3.
My work communicates urgent environmental concerns in emotionally resonant works, and drives action by donating large portion of the proceeds to an environmental cause.
I met Mintbase representatives and dived deeper into the wider ecosystem at the NEAR Foundation’s face-to-face community event in London. Today, I was invited to represent Mintbase and the ecosystem’s ethos at a face-to-face event in London next week. The event is IRL NFT with talks and an art exhibition.
I will attend the event, representing Mintbase and I will have the opportunity to showcase high quality art in a dedicated space and a willing audience. My artwork: Tulum (2021) - YouTube
I will showcase my art on screens in a dedicated Mintbase space, and I have an opportunity to package one of my works for the VR art experience to showcase the full range of Mintbase tools.
I will auction off one art piece at the event to the maximum bidder. And I will sell smaller pieces for 5-10 NEAR during the activity.
I also will speak on stage for 10 minutes in between Keynotes, commanding the audience’s attention and reinforcing the messaging of sustainability, creative community, and NFTs for Good.
~400 IRL attendees at the event learning about Mintbase and the ecosystem
~1,700 followers on my Twitter account who will see the messaging
~Recorded video and photos amplified through Mintbase channels
~Amplification through the event organizers’ content channels
~Reinforcing NFTs with utility messaging
~Affiliation with one of the world’s best and most recognized art schools
Time is of the essence, and in order to make this face to face opportunity worthwhile, I have developed a plan and engaged supporting technical partners to help me realize this initiative. I need help preparing some of my digital art files for the event next week, setting up the Mintbase store front, and physical logistics of getting to and around the event.
~8 NEAR for store creation and minting fees
~12 NEAR for logistics of getting to and around London
~40 NEAR to support technical preparation for the VR experience
~50 NEAR for Linkdrops to attendees not yet on the NEAR ecosystem for signups (unused Linkdrops will be used on subsequent occasions)
Total = 110 NEAR

This is just the beginning of my journey to bring creatives and makers together, turn them into environmental activist artists and make a collective difference by supporting regenerative projects around the world. Stay tuned!
