The Process

We cranked the camera with a limited number of stills, armed the racing drone, and sent it into the peril of windy, rocky, tree covered landscapes and coastlines, steered via the radiowaves expanding out of the remote. The timer was manually set when the shutter was released, allowing a mere 11 seconds to position a desirable image. Between each click, a risky landing was performed to avoid crashing the aircraft, we've had hundreds of trials and errors. Each fresh takeoff was fraught with anxiety and doubt about whether the old camera would release the shutter and whether the drone was going at the appropriate speed based on the aperture and shutter speeds, to produce a worthwhile shot. We collided with trees and almost fell into the sea. The old cameras got sticky and unpredictable. There was no way to check images and recalibrate camera settings accordingly. We simply kept the faith that enough magic would be captured in our imagery to be worthy of this new realm that now exists beyond time in the form of NFTs.

The Story

The seas raged with rivalry. Life was no longer guaranteed to all. Oxygen was becoming scarce. Algae had choked the coastal waters. Everyone was gasping to escape from this sinking ship. Adjacent a new world was blooming and the land could provide for rescue. New plants were releasing oxygen and bugs were swarming around. The nimblest fish scrambled up the sandy beach with their awkward fins. They took a brief moment to rest, half in, half out of the water, for a refreshing dip in the new air. Look at all these scrumptious bugs, creeping across the ground and shooting through the sky. I really wish I might also fly but, we must learn to walk. Yeah, that's just all talk. It may take a few years, or perhaps a couple million, but we'll get there. First, we need to swap these gills for lungs. For the time being, may we lay our eggs safely on shore, away from the madness beneath the waves in this new world on this new stable soil. This land holds hope. This is our origin.
