It is a privilege to contribute to the digital art renaissance on the blockchain, an archive of our history. Creating art is my peaceful rebellion to the system.
The Little Book of Mindfulness is a union of Tara B.’s craft and her practice. While on a journey of healing her body, heart, and mind, she began gathering and photographing Australian flora. As a teacher of mindfulness meditation, she turned to the practice for support. Through creating art, exploring the self, and living mindfully she was able to return to peace.

La Tour Eiffel – NFT
A visit to the top of the l’Arc de Triomphe gave me this perspective of La Tour Eiffel, tucked in by the surrounding buildings. I love the gradient light of shadows in the foreground and the fog layering the background.

What is Web3?
Decentralization. Cryptocurrency. Blockchain. NFTs.
Web 1 was the beginning with static webpages with no interactivity.
Web 2 has meant content creations, platforms, social media, and big tech owning your data. We’re still here.
Web 3 is the next phase of the web. Decentralized, removing the middleman, giving creators more control of their data. We’re expanding here.
What is an NFT?
Non-Fungible Token is what it stands for but what does it actually mean?
An NFT is a unique digital asset that is bought and sold in cryptocurrency. It can be an image, a movie, an audio file, or a 3D model. Think JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG, MP4, WEBM, MP3, WAV, and more.
NFTs include art, music, sports, games, and more.
Think paintings, photography, digital art, poetry, songs, VR, AR, and the list goes on.
NFTs are bought and sold in cryptocurrency.
Cryptocurrency is a digital currency that operates on the blockchain, a decentralized database of a network of computers that act as a ledger of transactions to verify the sale.
What makes NFTs unique?
Ownership is authenticated on the blockchain verifying the original creator.
There is only ever one original. It may be possible to have a copy but the value is in the original.
An NFT is rare. It can be a 1/1 piece or a limited quantity.
Every time an NFT is resold the original creator receives a commission.
NFTs are immutable thus reducing censorship.
