The Art Concept

"Once it was free." is a journey through the meaning of our language, of our way of identifying ideas, experiences and sensations, through words and images, a quest for the concept of value in our current society.

Each photograph is unique, and is the result of an advance semantic web scrapping technique created by "the Author". Previously published without any copyright, is now an NFT with commercial rights granted to the owner.

The NFT collection

OIWF is a collection composed by 15'000 ERC-721 on the Ethereum blockchain, splitted equally in three different drops called "Noun", "Adjective" and "Verb", the main pillars of our language. Each NFT present the following attributes: a common frame and setting, the drop category, a rarity score and a concept. This latter, interpreted by the artist with a unique image, is placed at the center of each work.

Embracing the true meaning of the collection title ("Once it was free."), the first drop will be given for free to the selected pool of collectors and investors, letting them perform a price discovery in the secondary market, which will ultimately define the base price of the other two drops.

Moreover, three "Easter Eggs" have been hidden, those brave enough to accept and overcome challenges will unlock exceptional rewards.

Mecenate DAO

The third drop is not the end of our journey, it's just the beginning. Having collected all the three drops, will be granted you access to the "Mecenate DAO", a decentralized autonomous organization founded with the aim of continuing promoting NFT art projects, scouting emerging artists and starting collaborations, creating a new form of democratic patronage in the Web3.

As a member, you will be able to introduce new artists to the DAO, present art projects and trigger a general consultation about the potential collaboration. If the outcome is positive, you will take the lead as "Patron of the project" and will be granted you access to part of the DAO treasury. As a reward for all your effort, you will receive 25% of the DAO profit generated by the collaboration, while the remaining 75% will be kept in the treasury for further projects and crypto distributions to all members.
