Andy Blood, a former creative strategist at Facebook, has continued his partnership with CENNZnet for the release of his new book Near Futures, Far-Fetched. The collection of six short stories will be published as NFTs, paired with animated work, in a community publishing event on the blockchain starting in April.
The stories in Near Futures, Far-Fetched explore themes and possibilities that will exist in the metaverse. These range from The Last Bitcoin (set in the year 2139), to the social network of objects, a terrorist group infiltrating CERN, our too-smart cities becoming dumb, weaponising ‘clean’, and first contact with intelligent non-human life. Carl Sagan and Tim Berners-Lee make guest appearances, in roles they might never have imagined. These are tales for an accelerated culture.
“Working closely with Liz Izmailova and Nicole Upchurch and the team at Centrality.ai helped me create something unique, so that each story embedded within the NFT itself will be easily readable to anyone interested.” — Near Futures, Far-Fetched Author Andy Blood.
“In 2022, while many have been rushing toward the metaverse, this author has spent their time focussing on the multiverse. In this world, many versions of you experience many versions of your life. We’re excited to host such a creative literary project on one of CENNZnet’s platforms.” — CENNZnet CMO Nicole Upchurch.
Near Futures, Far-Fetched is another collaboration between CENNZnet and Andy Blood following last September’s world first ‘book as NFT’ project. Their previous release Full Bleed was met with great enthusiasm by tech circles and the Web3 community.
Each individual story NFT in the Near Futures, Far-Fetched will be released in an edition of ten exclusively on the Lithoverse platform.
The 6 NFT-story pairings will be launched on the following dates and are viewable here:
