NOTE: Thank you to everyone who bought these works! Follow me on Twitter at @khole_emily for news on next steps regarding the Deluge Books experiments in Web 3. These works are still available for viewing at folia.app!
Today I’m very excited to launch three new works on Folia – CODE OF HOLES, PLASTIC BEACH and THE FUTURIST. These three NFT works are generative poems I created with new digital language models and algorithms, plus my own poetic composition. The proceeds from this Folia auction will be completely redistributed to queer, trans, experimental and undersupported writers as the first action of the Deluge Books DAO. Deluge Books is the mass experimental queer literary press I run with collaborators in New York and Los Angeles (try to say that five times fast). Ever since I crowdfunded my new book BURN ALPHA as $NOVEL we have been excited about the possibilities of crypto, Mirror, and NFTs for generating new methods for sustaining original literary work. You can read a little more about my thoughts on that in my interview in Decrypt. Down the road, we are pumped about the possibility of crowdfunding for the Deluge DAO on Mirror and our own social token :) Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter at @khole_emily or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have thoughts or suggestions about that!
NOTE: This crowdfund is now closed! I'm incredibly grateful! In order to keep in touch, reach out to me with your Ethereum address on Twitter at @khole_emily after you've contributed (at this point, I am obsessed with you, which is a plus!)
Welcome to a new experiment: using crypto to crowdfund my new novel, working title BURN ALPHA. The supporters of $NOVEL would be the first of their kind, since no other novels have ever been created this way, in the history of literary culture :)
