Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All

“The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All” is a crypto-art project that takes the form of unique timestamped events of the world in a state of entropy– a view from the International Space Station on Christmas day, the view from the singularity in the year 2525, the Great Barrier Reef, making pancakes.

Each work is an immutable record of a specific moment that otherwise would be “lost forever, like tears in the rain”, timestamped with the Epoch time standard and encoded in the Etherium blockchain.

You can buy these limited edition digital artworks on the crypto art marketplace at Rarible.com.

The title refers to Laird Barron’s book of cosmic-horror short stories, you should give it a read!

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.
