Deep in the lowland tropical forests of Indonesian Borneo, a single voice emerges from a cave. The singer, a young man named Marut, sings of his lost invincibility, and laments that he no longer has the strength to travel, but still wishes to journey to distant places. “I hope that will be my destiny,” he pleads. “I ask for my journey to be successful.” Marut is a member of the Cave Punan, a group of hunter-gatherers on the island whose territory is being encroached upon by forest clearing for lucrative palm oil farms. Until recently, few even knew of the […]

Over the course of 2022, there’s been a lot of discussion about the role of AI in art. Thanks in large part to how accessible generative adversarial networks (GANs) like Midjourney and DALL-E have become, individuals all over the globe are uncovering their inner artists for the first time in their lives.

But there’s much more to be understood about the burgeoning blockchain-based innovation happening in the NFT space than can be pigeonholed into […]
