The NFTs will consist of 8 animated pieces set in the Polymorphism Universe, an environment in which the intricate beings that inhabit it have unconventional methods of locomotion. The visual style blurs the line between traditional, hand-drawn techniques and modern CGI tools. The art direction is informed by themes of psychedelia, retro-futurism, and pop surrealism.

Each piece will be crafted with original music and sound design by media artist and music producer Drasko V.

The visuals for POLYMORPHIC almost always begin with the creatures, often in a very iterative fashion. I don’t go into the designs with a sketch or idea of how the creature should look — somewhere along the way I tend to regurgitate forms and anatomical features from existing animals into the designs. 

Every iteration of the creature is informed by imagining how I think that being would exist in its environment: How does it move? What sensory features does it use to make sense of its environment? Does it travel by itself or in a group? I like to think that every visible feature is informed and serves a purpose.

All of the separate designs are married together with a visual treatment, creating a consistent look and feel for the universe. Black outlines of every object give the feeling that the creatures are hand-drawn. Limited and saturated color palettes, often with two dominant colors, give it a duo-tone look. The pieces are textured and colored after the design and animation phase in 2D — this helps dial in a 2D / 3D hybrid aesthetic.

The long-form versions of all the original tracks featured in the pieces will be featured on a limited run of 12" vinyl EPs.

The collection includes a 1/1 12” vinyl EP.  The full soundtrack experience exists exclusively on this record. Digital audio sessions from the project will be destroyed and the original music will not be accessible anywhere aside from the vinyl. The soundtrack contains two continuous pieces: an ambient musical journey on side A, and a complex, rhythmic, and sound design heavy exploration on side B.

The vinyl is pressed in white and comes in a glass frame, and comes with a Custom designed gatefold jacket enclosure by McAfee.Design.

Once an owner is determined, they will have the option to have their name and NFT related details added to the design of the record as the first original holder of the item.
