My NFT collection, AI Ecstasy, is now available on OpenSea! This set of AI-generated NFTs contains a variety of images that explore the many different forms of ecstatic experience. From everyday moments to religious experiences to drug-induced trips, these NFTs show us things we don't usually see in our day-to-day lives. If you're looking for some NFTs that offer a fresh perspective, then this is the collection for you!
I started making this collection when I created an image based on Ennio Morricone's incredible song, “The Ecstasy of Gold.” I was so pleased with the results that I decided to explore the theme of profound, wondrous experiences, for good, ill, and something beyond that.
Every NFT in this collection combines AI-generated artwork with images from history, religion, philosophy, art, music, and science. Many also include stories and surreal descriptions. Some of the NFTs in this collection include:
- The Ecstasy of Gold, which shares its title with the Morricone song.
- The Ecstasy of Solitude #1, first in a series with more to follow.
- The Ecstasy of the Lightning Tree, a strange surreal image with an strange story in the description. I don't know quite where this one came from, to be honest.
- If the doors of perception were cleansed… …every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. Two images directly inspired by this famous quote from William Blake.
- The Arrow of Heaven, based on St. Teresa of Avila's vision of an arrow of God's love piercing her heart.
- Images inspired by cave art, both when it was freshly painted and when it was used to tell stories.
If you've seen the preview videos you know that some images are missing. I have more to upload in this series but this is my first full NFT collection, so I'm still learning. Hope you enjoy!
