AWAKE is one of first ever NFT's that changes with time based on user geolocation, sold during Art Basel Miami 2021 at Chritie's auction house in historical Christie's x Opensea x Nftnow sale. 

We live for and thrive in meaningful connections with each other. When those connections are lost, it disrupts our notion of what exists and what is gone. Regardless of how integral we are to each other's lives, we are still here. In life, afterlife, and memories. Surrounded by our own perception. Our own fabric of existence.

AWAKE | The time piece

Too often we live our lives as if they were a dream, not paying attention to important experiences. Life doesn't spoil us with many wake up calls, but when it does, we often sleep through them, ignoring them, simply because we're afraid of the unknown, until it's too late. We then regret, not that we failed, but instead that we didn't even try...

This combination piece is meant to remind us to stay awake. 

The project was borken down into two main sections that were required by client - loop and countdown. To make both connect and flow we decided to combine two into one big sequence that we storyboarded and executed for final minute of the animation and use the re-arranged loop elements for the reminder of 9 mins required by the client.
