Hello fellow degenerates,
This post and all future posts will be a less formal look into our project and myself specifically being @IGotYourTacos on twitter or Jeremy. I want to give a more personal look into why I made these NFTs and what significance they have in my own life.
Our project gets its foundations from my college career, which I didn’t finish. Thanks to opportunities provided by crypto, I decided to take a one-year break from courses to focus on our project Element Art. I was enrolled at an engineering school where I was pursuing a bachelors degree in physics. I had begun classes already for my senior year when I had the inspiration of creating mathematically inclined NFTs. During my courses, I was tasked with creating all types of cellular automata which is where I first discovered Dr. Stephen Wolfram’s elementary rule for 1D cellular automata. This mathematical basis is what I used for our first collection of art. Each NFT comes from a basic set of rules that often times generate some complex behavior that is completely unpredictable. I couldn’t wrap my head around a very simple idea generating random or chaotic behavior, which is why I became so enthralled by them.
Fast forward a few months and here I am being a degenerate at home. Even though I left school, I really enjoy any scientific/mathematical relevant subjects and would love nothing more than to extend this into the NFT community. These NFTs are intended for any and all people who have ever wondered about something profound and realized they were completely small to the larger universe they exist in. So every human on the planet. My vision is for element Art to be a hub for all people to come together and discuss what they think is beautiful about anything in life. I personally find beauty in the simplicity yet elegance of these cellular automata. If I can share these with others and inspire similar feelings to the ones I feel, that would be enough for me.
We have plenty of community based ideas brewing as we approach our first collections’ mint in approximately a month or so, being middle of October, and would love to make community inspired art in the future. Let’s say a significant portion of our community likes some specific scientific phenomenon, we would be thrilled to create something for them.
If you’ve made it this far, thank you very much for reading and stay tuned for weekly updates to this page. I’ll be covering rough updates to the project as well as any idea the community loves so if this post inspired any thought of yours, please share it on our discord!
