More about Ablative Promenade II here. The Promenades are best viewed in VHD or UHD full screen, and they have soundtracks.
A while back, I thought that Ether was the luminiferous and invisible substance that filled all of the universe, and my idea of cryptic currency dealings was putting a coin in a machine, pressing buttons, and no cup of coffee appearing. Now I think that non-fungible tokens (NFTs) might be edible if you cook them with pasta.
Copyright is a nuisance that commonly means you can’t make full versions of your artworks freely available on the internet, and an audience who might otherwise enjoy your work, can’t. (I’m almost sure one of my relatives is interested.)
With the NFT alternative, anyone who wants to can see the almost-actual artworks, and Ablative Promenades I and II are examples, apart from quality loss associated with posting on the web.
Ablative Promenades I and II are listed at OpenSea, and the tokens include the right for the original owner to redeem a free high-quality digital image from the set of 23 basis artworks for the videos, as well as VHD and UHD versions of the video itself.
There are two promenades because of some limitations with file size: together they form a complete six-minute looping video.
A token verse:
The moistest dream of each creator,
mistaking what might be evoked
for arcane magic, is to cast a spell,
an enchantment, to find the geometric path
to what is perfectly imperfect,
the inexplicably unique,
to mystify belief, and to fix
the washing machine, the repair
of which they cannot pay.
