The first 23 original NFT artworks created by #1 bestselling author Augusten Burroughs features twenty-three one-of-a-kind video works that fuse brief original video clips with Augusten’s own quotes, creating visual "epiphanies" that are sometimes profound, sometimes absurd; but somehow oddly riveting. Some of the videos are vintage, shot with one of the earliest digital Leica cameras, other videos were created using contemporary cameras and phones. The text is utilitarian: information bluntly delivered against a background in motion that may reflect the message or may refract it. Some of the videos are silent, some are not. The low-contrast titles may sometimes require scrutiny to read, making the videos less of a passive, a passive, consumptive experience. Whether speaking of truth, pain, and isolation, desire, self-acceptance, synesthesia, or love the artworks have a visual aesthetic that is unlike what we have come to expect in an NFT.
