A stand for public domain
This project is a love letter to the art and critique on the company spending Millions of Dollars to extend copyright terms while licensing public domain goods, exploiting our cultural heritage.
Or as Wisecrack has put it correctly, D. „takes [once public domain] stories like Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty or the Hunchback of Notre Dame and throws them into the commercial meat grinder. […] They’ve been doing this for the past hundred years.“
Therefore, we do the opposite.

The Flowtys concept looks back an entire century. Simpler times when all art and media was still analogue. In contrast to todays’ digital media, analogue movie reels were strongly affected by time. This inspired us to create Flowtys, utilizing the unique opportunity blockchain tech provides to alter the artwork over time:
*** The longer you hold it in your wallet, the older it gets.
Flowtys only age while staying in the same wallet. The transfer of a Flowty from one wallet to another restarts the counter. Once the aging time threshhold was surpassed and the Flowty has aged, it cannot be reversed. Yes, time’s a bitch.
