W3CR | Open Studio #8
W3CR | Open Studio #8
Forefront's Web3 Creator Residency has launched its 2nd cohort of Resident Creators: Kabuki (Residency game plan) Nico (Agartha Village Figma) d3mo (yh⁴ project) This is the last Open Studio of Forefront's first W3CR! This Monday, our Resident Creators Nico, Kabuki and d3mo gathered to look back on the past four weeks, ideate on what their ideal Residency would look like and tackle the core  Listen in on the W3CR Open Studio now: We revisited the question of the essential elements of a Creator's ecology, asking the Resident Creators, "what do you absolutely need to enable you to create?" Nico thrives on tasting a variety of different experiences and cultures and surfing the Google search engine to drink up knowledge! Though Nico had never thought of building in public as essential to her ecology, she now sees that it provides an invaluable "sanity check" to help creators sense if they are in touch with the world. Kabuki stresses the importance of IRL interactions to his creator ecology. IRL gatherings hit different than Zoom calls, because the effort one takes to travel, to dress properly (vs dressing from just the shoulders up!), deepens the felt impact/significance of our eventual encounter with others.  d3mo posited that his ideal Residency would include an IRL element, after which an intriguing jam sesh was sparked on why it is so difficult for creators to come together to collaborate. d3mo thought that lack of structure, discipline and time/money were factors. Kabuki believes the coordination nut is hard to crack chiefly because of the lack of a common language and the difficulty of listening selflessly to what is coming out of the collective. (Indeed, you will likely realize that you were never taught how to practice or execute these "skills" that are so germinal to social life.)

W3CR | Open Studio #7
Forefront's Web3 Creator Residency has launched its 2nd cohort of Resident Creators: Kabuki (Residency game plan) Nico (Agartha Village Figma) d3mo (yh⁴ project) During the Residency, our Resident Creators will be workshopping their projects, learning and building in public, and sharing their challenges along the way. Each Monday, they'll gather for our weekly Open Studio. Listen in on the W3CR Open Studio now: The Creators recalled those special moments when a creation crosses the line from mere artifice to something with deeper life due to perhaps a subtle transformation.  Kabuki shared a musical analogy - applying reverb! The convolution reverb method involves going into a specific physical space, sweeping sound frequencies through this room and simulating the recorded sound in a virtual recreation of this room. For d3mo, these moments are driven by subtle sound design, which ensures that the visual & and the musical component are not separate, but coherent.  Nico's sessions last week explored Permaculture as a "spiritual science." What does such a characterization mean to Nico and the other Resident Creators? What does the experience of "intuition" have to do with spiritual science? Nico's sessions also inspired a jam sesh on the topic of Nature as an interconnected ecology. What is the analogy of this ecology in a Creator's life? What essential elements or factors must be present in the Resident Creators' "ecology" to enable them to create?  Kabuki stresses the need for limitations, structure and tradition to be present, while Nico emphasizes the need for freedom from these!

Forefront's Web3 Creator Residency has launched its 2nd cohort of Resident Creators: Kabuki (Residency game plan) Nico (Agartha Village Figma) d3mo (yh⁴ project) During the Residency, our Resident Creators will be workshopping their projects, learning and building in public, and sharing their challenges along the way. Each Monday, they'll gather for our weekly Open Studio. Listen in on the W3CR Open Studio now: Last week, Nico's Residency sessions explored the belief systems that motivate creators. What is the higher belief motivating Nico's project? "We want to elevate consciousness," Nico said, conceding this may sound "super cheesy and very L.A."  But how do we make the world a better place?, asks Nico in all seriousness. We can all agree that we want to live in a beautiful, humane environment. This is the common ground that inspires Nico's project which explores technically, how can we live in harmony with Nature?  d3mo shares the unique inspiration behind the name of his project (ytrium and hydrogen, a chemical combination that is not actually possible in our world and would destroy it if they were somehow brought together) and h/ts the book Codex Seraphinianus.  Kabuki's 1st week of Residency emphasizes the importance of performing "due diligence" - immersing oneself in the history and pioneers of a field of art (in this case, generative art) before diving into create oneself. Kabuki shares the astonishing story of how Buckminster Fuller invented "high-frequency sleep" - a method for increasing his productivity and waking hours while reducing the number of hours of sleep required!

Each Monday, they'll gather for our weekly Open Studio. Listen in on the W3CR Open Studio now: Kabuki's 1st week of Residency will focus on sharing his productivity hacks as a creator: how to stay in a productive mindset, how to stay accountable and how to switch between "both sides of the brain" to balance the right amount of structure and guardrails with free space to play d3mo shares his approach to world-building and muses that he is often "discovering" the connection between his art pieces as he creates them, vs arranging connections in a preset fashion. Nico shares her epiphany about the prototype eco-village she is building: it is not enough for the architectures to be environmentally sound. They must also be inspirational! And for this, Nico is digging back into the designs of ancient Indian, Chinese & Islamic temples to inspire her new structures.  Note: we have published the audio/video as originally recorded on the Riverside.fm platform; please excuse any hiccups as we build in public!

Community Hangout | Web3 Baddies
Community Hangout | Web3 Baddies
Welcome to the FF podcast. Today we're stoked to bring you a Community Hangout with En, the Community Lead of Web3 Baddies. Web3 Baddies is the hot girl metaverse and is on a mission to make web3 more diverse, inclusive and accessible. En recently joined Jihad on a Forefront Community Hangout. They jammed about web3’s inherently social nature, which calls upon us to focus more on the ppl than the tech and also to be intentional about creating diverse, inclusive spaces. And you won’t want to miss En’s thoughts near the end of this podcast, when they press for a new paradigm for the lifecycle of businesses and orgs, one that pivots away from scarcity and fear to embrace a dynamic of entities emerging and then dying, to make room for new initiatives that are more needed. links https://www.web3baddies.com/ https://twitter.com/web3baddies
