This is a crypto-art project hosted on Rarible.com. It takes the form of unique, crypto-encoded video stills from live feeds of the world in a state of entropy– the Great Barrier Reef, the Arctic Ice Shelf, forest fires in California.
Each image is a unique and immutable art piece that records unique slices of time that will otherwise be “lost forever, like tears in the rain.”
The title refers to Laird Barron’s book of cosmic-horror short stories, you should give it a read!
I’m going to continue to add to the collection here:
Some of them are set in the future!
A Real and True Record of New Year’s Eve 2525 :: Epoch Time :: 17545679984
“Video feed of the year 2525. Unique, immutable, permanent. It will never look like this exact moment again. You can buy an ultra-rare NFT here!“
Although it is weirdly expensive to create these art objects in terms of buying the crypto-currency Etherium, my goal is to make these on-demand and ultimately integrate them with a live video/LED display that will cycle through them.

View from the Singularity in 2595 :: Epoch Time :: 19743382899
A Real and True Record of the view out my window during August in the year 2595, six hundred years after the release of Windows 95. Unique, immutable, permanent. It will never look like this exact moment again. You can purchase it as an NFT here!
