This NFT is a collaboration between William and myself. I met William at NFT.NYC. I appreciated his humbleness and energy very much. When talking about this collaborative project, William shared that one of his daughter Ella's favorite shapes include the octagon. His little one learned to say “octagon” and “parallelogram” at a very young age. Her grandfather would take her out to the supermarket and always show off to other people that she could pronounce such complicated words. Working with the octagonal shape, that brings such a happy memory into the world, was a joy.
William also mentioned that his daughter connects dreams with colors. She would talk about pink, blue, and grey dreams in relation to the people she sees in her dreams. The connection between actions and words, that children can formulate to make sense of the world around them, is incredible. In regards to dreaming, this NFT features a galaxy-like image in the center of the octagon... alluding to the astral projection-like quality of dreams. When dreaming we can break the laws of physics and logic which brings a sense of unlimited freedom. Dreaming is also a crucial part of grieving and the process of healing. Dreaming is a fascinating topic for a child to explore and this work honors that thinking.
This NFT process is part of the ongoing Geometric Shape Series, which is a video study on geometric shapes, chroma zoom filters, LFOs, and glitch aesthetics. These geometric video loops are visual meditations that invite the viewer to slow down, breathe in, and appreciate the here and now.
