TECHMENTAL MEDIA

“SURPRISINGLY HUMAN”™

CRYPTO ART + MIX MEDIA

1. MANIFESTO

TechMental has strategically built a reputation for marketing and designing websites, graphic arts and street art for over two decades from an undisclosed tropical bunker off the shores of Biscayne Boulevard.

The Web has evolved from the dark days of 14K chatrooms into a metaverse of decentralize fundamentals, and as an established pixel pusher – the constant rediscovery of fresh avenues for creating mix media projects that represent a brand or a corporation is key for web supremacy. The satisfaction of producing digital media for a greater purpose beyond the commercial facade of the Internet encompassed with a decentralize opus, enriches the freedom of raw creativity.

The Crypto Art that TechMental continues to push forward engages the boundaries of an architectural symmetry between the author and the token holder. A mere reflection of its imaginary topography rooted from an organic society, whilst against the grain of the mundane.

2. Ethereum Name Service (ENS) Domains

Ethereum Name Service (ENS) is an open and extensible naming system based on the Ethereum blockchain. It is the leading blockchain-based naming infrastructure project and maps human-readable names to machine-readable identifiers such as Ethereum addresses. This system has similar goals to DNS, but it is not a replacement for DNS. The concept is similar to using a domain name in place of an IP address.

One Name For All of Your Cryptocurrencies:
No more copying and pasting long addresses. Use your ENS name to store all of your addresses and receive payments in any cryptocurrency.

Decentralized Websites:
Launch censorship-resistant decentralized websites with ENS. Upload your website to an IPFS Manager and access it with your ENS name.

3. IPFS / InterPlanetary File System

The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a protocol and peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data in a distributed file system. IPFS uses content-addressing to uniquely identify each file in a global namespace connecting all computing devices.

IPFS allows users to not only receive but host content, in a similar manner to BitTorrent. As opposed to a centrally located server, IPFS is built around a decentralized system of user-operators who hold a portion of the overall data, creating a resilient system of file storage and sharing. Any user in the network can serve a file by its content address, and other peers in the network can find and request that content from any node who has it using a distributed hash table (DHT).

The first search engine / directory for ENS + IPFS websites, called Almonit, launched in January 2020. You can visit it at almonit.eth (or almonit.eth.link) and browse their directory of decentralized websites on their Discover page. Browser support is going well! You can now visit ENS + IPFS websites in Brave, Opera, Status, MetaMask Mobile, any browser with the MetaMask extension, and more. The IPFS daemon also now comes with ENS support.

4. DECENTRALIZED APPS

(DApps) are a growing movement of Decentralized Applications that use Ethereum to disrupt business models or invent new ones. Innovators from across the globe are developing an entire new spectrum of (DApps) not limited to ESports, Social, Art, Real Estate and Finance communities. Decentralized finance (DeFi) are applications that focus on building out financial services using cryptocurrencies. They offer the likes of lending, borrowing, earning interest, and private payments – no personal data required.

DApps have their backend code (smart contracts) running on a decentralized network and not a centralized server. They use the Ethereum blockchain for data storage and smart contracts for their app logic.

A smart contract is like a set of rules that live on-chain for all to see and run exactly according to those rules. Imagine a vending machine: if you supply it with enough funds and the right selection, you’ll get the item you want. And like vending machines, smart contracts can hold funds much like your Ethereum account. This allows code to mediate agreements and transactions.

5. NON-FUNGIBLE TOKENS

ERC-721 / ERC-1155 are open standards that describe how to build non-fungible or unique tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. These avant-garde technologies open doors to decentralize opportunities where one can manifest rare and collectible assets that are unique from one another.

Graphic Designers, Web Developers and Programmers are transcending into Crypto Artists armed with a decentralized palette that conceptualizes, creates and capitalizes their artistry through an encrypted canvas. Museums, Galleries and Art collectors are flocking to unlock these rare tokenized collectibles as they’re added to their own portfolios as virtual assets.

Ethereum, EOS and ChainLink are just a few of the Blockchains that are leading by example within the Non-Fungible Token capacity.

6. VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE / AR / VR / XR

Virtual Reality (VR) is an immersive experience also known as computer-simulated reality. It refers to computer technologies using reality headsets to generate the realistic sounds, images and other sensations that replicate a real environment or create an imaginary world.

Extended Reality (XR) is a term for the use of computer technology and wearable devices to produce a combination of real and virtual, human-computer interactive environment. The expansion includes augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), mixed reality (MR) and many other forms. In other words, to avoid confusion, XR is a generic term that includes VR, AR, and MR. The XR points are divided into multiple levels, from a virtual world with wired sensor input, to a full virtual world.

If we’ve learned anything as a society from the year 2020 while living in a social distancing world due to Covid-19 restrictions, its that virtual technology is no longer the future of modern communication, but in essence it is the modern day right of passage to freedom from physical social impediments.

Whether you’re a University Professor conducting a class through ZOOM, a Physician practicing diagnostic care through TeleHealth, or you’re rushing home to gear up for a music concert event all of your friends are going to virtually attend in Decentraland. One thing is certain, we are all witnessing the world entering a new realm of social interconnections, a paradigm shift of virtual endless possibilities.

Biscayne Style, Episode 1 | CRYPTO ART

– A digital depiction reflecting an embodiment of the Miami Marine Stadium, a legendary architectural marvel on Biscayne Bay, a lagoon that is approximately 35 miles long and up to 8 miles wide located on the Atlantic coast of South Florida, United States. On the flip side through an artistic license that is passed down from artist to artist. We are honoring Hilario Candela the genius architect behind the Miami Marine Stadium, as well as Cristo Jeanne-Claude, the mastermind couple who decided to fly to Miami and dress 11 islands on Biscayne Bay in pink polypropylene skirts. That art installation was coined Surrounded Islands.

This virtual art collaboration is set in Graffiti lettering highlighting the artists involved, while the title Biscayne Style, laced with an Art Deco type-face – in true Hypergraphia fashion.

Whut213’s original Miami Marine Stadium Art chair – coined Miami Nights 2018, takes the main stage. An inspirational tribute to Cristo and Jeanne Claude’s Surrounded Islands art installation, notably on its 35th anniversary of its Biscayne Bay exhibition. It’s Mid-century metal and wood fibers have been freshly painted, sealed and strategically resurfaced with slick black, white and aqua paint splashes. This piece is a perfect complement to any Miami Art History collection, as it is archived in the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The tokenization of this art piece is an homage to those creative minds who not only paved the way through their imaginative accomplishments, but are also no longer with us in the physical realm. Through the adoption of this Non-fungible Art token, these inspirational agents will transcend reality by inspiring future minds in an artistic spirit – that theoretically takes place in the past, in the present and in the foreseeable future, via programmable art technology.

*Non-fungible tokens (NFT) are a special class of assets stored on the Ethereum blockchain characterized by being unique and non-interchangeable with one another for equal value. An NFT is different from a cryptocurrency in that it is defined by metadata that builds-in a role, function, and value that are unique to it. Specifically, a non-fungible token can be a video game asset, a work of art, a collectible card or image, or any other “unique” object stored and managed on a Blockchain.

MERMAID HANGOVER | CRYPTO ART

From the depths of the Atlantic surfaces a creature of nautical desire. She sleeps through storms and hunts by night, her appetite for flesh is as legendary as pirate lore. Dreams of ancient worlds and distant lovers haunt serenity, as lightning rattles empty flasks of Caribbean spirits. An encrypted map to secret treasures of a golden fleece is sunk deep in the gallows of an ocean bed. Who will unearth her sacred chest – naturally bare to the naked eye, yet shines like Northern stars when planets align?
