The fact that minting NFTs can consume a lot of energy and become harmful to the environment has sparked many controversies. Climate change is said to be the biggest challenge for our generation and generations to come. Thankfully, there are already energy-savvy protocols and rely on newer techniques that are neutral for the environment (e.g., Tezos). The most significant player in the space in terms of protocols (Ethereum) has also announced changes in its technology roadmap to becoming less harmful for the world. While the whole clean NFT movement started, I came across an artist that found a unique way to promote carbon neutrality through her work. Her name is Ghost in the Wifi, and she is the “Carbonated Credit” collection mastermind.
Originally from Texas, she currently lives in New Mexico and enjoys different art forms such as painting, sculpture, and photography. Like many other crypto artists, her journey began in March. Nevertheless, she has been creating original artworks for years.
When asked about the motivation behind his “Carbonated Credit III” piece, she explained an original process that captures matter decomposition. Ghost in the WiFi finds this very pleasant and enjoys expressing feelings through abstraction. In her own words:
I’m always motivated to experiment and create work. I frequently take photos of my compost because I think it tends to be a pleasant abstract composition of organic matter. I lean more towards abstraction because I feel it is a closer form of expressing feelings and ideas for myself.
It all starts in the kitchen, where she keeps a compost bowl in the same place where she cooks. The process consists of recording through photographs the looks of the matter as it transforms.
I always keep a small compost bowl inside where I cook and then once it is full I disperse it into a larger composting location. Here is an image of the barrel before the contents got turned & here are a few images of the contents that have broken down.
She uses Procreate to create, edit and give the final touches to her creations.
What I find so powerful behind this piece is the simulation of matter decomposition through her daily life. She creates art from her daily routine, which is perfect for promoting carbon neutrality and clean NFTs. More projects like this should exist to improve the NFT community's reputation. Especially after the backslash from trendsetters like Elon Musk and Tesla.
Have you seen any other innovative carbon-neutral projects? I would love to hear more about them in the comments.
