The Async.art project ‘Any body?’ will be available August 17th, 2022 at 04:30pm est. At this time and into the future you may mint a unique ‘No body. #0-333’. Additionally, I will be releasing 2 (two) more Tokenized Digital Products (NFT) in the comeing weeks, hopefully. Both will be based on the same original acrylic painting ‘Zapotec’ and have visual effects that span a timeframe and seamlessly loop. The ultimate NFT will be titled ‘Zapotec X Huichol’ and will have the original music composition as accompaniment plus VisualFX embellishments. That ultimate form is synchronized throughout the 03:12 of the record. These digital assets are further extensions of my traditional paintings and music production. They are only capable of being experienced using computational apparati. Your Virtually Simulated Experience with Meta, SteamVR, etc. will truly come alive in a way not possible by just listening to MP3’s or viewing paintings in person.

Grow an Axe at home.

Do it yourself.

    Although I don’t suggest burying an ax head next to your Oak shoots next spring. I highly recommend growing axes as a hobby. A man found an entire Axe. A root apparently found it first (Kansas man discovers a peculiar ax with a root for a handle in his front yard: NPR). I got smarted (Worm’s Use of Copper Could Point to Novel Material Designs – Scientific American).

     Someone should be able to utilize the potential for trees to consume objects. In a controlled way someone should be grow an Axe with Handle and intentionally. The technique stressing on a tree limb or trunk can be taken advantage of. No manipulation of a trunk would be necessary to mount a sapling through the eye of the axe. The trunk growth will provide the pressure required to secure the axe. (What are the Parts of an Axe? axeandanswered.com).

     It will be possible to bind or scar the trunk at the perfect length to provide a knob. In general, growers can adjust a saplings trunk during its maturation to fashion handle. Eventually we can experiment with supplementing to increase strength or appeal or both. Other material can run through the eye along the body and into the throat for interesting grips. Plus, multiple saplings will increase production while intertwining them could bring tensile relief. Are there other applications? I say, Plenty.
