For one glorious moment in time, I was all that is.
The Charged Particles platform on Ethereum combines DeFi (decentralized finance) with cryptoart. While a cryptoart NFT has speculative value, a charged particle adds intrinsic value (you can deposit ERC20 tokens), programmable interest (the ‘charge’), and configurable principle (you can time-lock the deposited tokens).

He focused again, and the room fanned apart.
A fractal multitude of armoires spun off to either side. On the left, he noticed a span filled with copies of his own dresser, but had no idea which timeline was “home.”

Quote from my sci-fi novel Tangential.
During a snowy week in February of 2020, I took a break from building the Avastars NFT platform to attend the ETHDenver conference.
Before heading out one gritty, cold night, I recorded sounds of people noodling on various instruments at a jam session in a weird basement nook. It was quite late and outside, the eerie ambience of a deserted street beckoned to be captured as well.
Later, somewhere between one of Denver’s ubiquitous dispensaries and my hotel, shadows and details of the sidewalk suddenly grabbed my attention and I shot a trove of photos. I believe beauty, as well as the devil, lies in the details.
