THE RANT is a written reaction to the development of blockchain technology. It is an artistic vision that leads the way into a possible future where our spirit and bodies are as much part of the technological revolution as the upcoming decentralized internet.
Redeem the key in the unlockable content, and you are granted access to co-writing future versions of THE RANT. Do you disagree with some parts and want to rewrite them?

"Central banking and the history of money, reincarnation and astrology, art, tech, neo-financing, and crypto, plus the possibilities of our existence being a simulation? I am willing to consider all possible angles on life at this point. There is nothing simple about the transitory era we are living in. It is all intertwined. The same technology that can save us all can enslave us if it is not handled wisely."
THE RANT is written by artist Ditte Ejlerskov (DK) and published as a traditional physical book by Forlaget Aftryk, DK. The digital book is launched by web3 collective Korridor, DK and Ctrl+Alt+Delete Books, DK.

Digital sculpture minted as an NFT. No 1/5 minted on MISA/Johann König, No 2/5 minted on Foundation
The Wrestlers is a virtual reality NFT sculpture developed in collaboration with Museet for Samtidskunst / the Museum of Contemporary Art, DK. On the marketplace MISA/Johann König the sculpture is represented as a GIF. Follow this link to try the browser version of the 3D sculpture or get the augmented reality code for your own phone camera or download the 3D print files for your computer: https://virtuelleskulpturer.samtidskunst.dk/en/
Concretely the sculpture reimagines the Uffizi Wrestlers, a marble sculpture of two men wrestling from the first century AD that epitomizes the idealized male body in antiquity. The NFT is thus part of a millennia-long Eurocentric tradition of copying, and sometimes slightly modifying, this sculptural representation of the two struggling bodies. The Ufizzi Wrestlers is itself a marble copy of the now-lost Greek original in bronze. Other replicas in bronze and plaster exist in numerous copies across the globe.
Despite being one of Western art history’s most well-known works, its origin and the original artist remain unknown. Through the Creative Commons license, Ejlerskov seek to further layer the history of copying and reinterpreting the classical sculpture. A collector of this NFT acquires the blockchain certificate ownership, but at the same time the artist waived her artistic copyright to the Creative Commons license (CC BY-NC 4.0).
“I wish to test if it is possible to reshape Western cultural history without entering discussions on the norm body or objectification of women. To me, the wrestlers are avatars without sex appeal. The project is of course shaped by my personal cultural viewpoint, and thus by definition it is Eurocentric. My focus is open-source sharing and feminist discourse set in motion through the act of making. And my motivation is deeply personal. Additionally, to me this NFT entails a new way of thinking about ownership. While the NFT exists as an edition of five, the virtual sculpture is licensed to the public domain, enabling wide access to the source files. The NFT will never change, but the virtual sculpture will gain a life of its own in our shared digital public space. People from all over the world sent me photos of their usage of the now global public sculpture.”

The Walk is a 2.33 min animation minted as an NFT on Foudation, edition of 1
The Walk is a walkthrough of an exterior scene inspired by the sentiment of Renaissance painter Fra Angelico and drawings by same-era-architect Hans Vredeman de Vries.
The scene was created for the epitomes Oxytocin and Adrenaline. Oxytocin (the love hormone) is released during hugs, sex, and especially in relation to childbirth. The opposing hormone is adrenaline - the intense fight or flight hormone, released with the intention to rescue us in a stressful situation.
The sculpture wants to tell you that opposing hormones cannot be present in the human bloodstream at the same time. It is one or the other. An unbroken battle.
Concept and film design developed, edited and mastered by Ditte Ejlerskov, DK with help from Henrik Yang, SE. Soundscape idea and design by Ditte Ejlerskov, DK. Mixed, mastered and composed by Bibek Giri, NP.
This collection is an ongoing bonding curved trading cards series. 100 1/1 unique works will be minted in total.
The images depict a sculptural idea created in antiquity, developed through a painful human experience, yet born in the meta verse as women where it will live into eternity.
This series explores smooth monochromatic crops of a sculpture of two wrestling women. In another time or very much elsewhere there was a sculpture. It was made by a woman so therefore it depicts women. Its main intend is to ask you to look inwards and learn to lean into love.
Frozen in time, these women represent hormones fighting within the human body. Oxytocin and adrenaline. For women, oxytocin (the love hormone) is released during hugs, sex, and especially after childbirth. The opposing hormone could be adrenaline - the intense fight or flight hormone, released with intention to save us in a stressful situation.
The sculpture wants to tell you, that opposing hormones cannot be present in the human bloodstream at the same time. It is one or the other. It is an unbroken battle. One has to win. In your life, which one do you feed? Which one do you let control your reality? The creator’s personal struggles with this – and therefore aim with this work – is to view the scenario of this fight from all possible angles, in order to learn the game of the bloodstream. Hopefully these images become tokens for life-changing behaviour-shifts for many individuals. Keep these images in your phone. Keep this token close to you. Let your awareness of this battle change your blood, so that your blood works for you and not against you.
