In partnership with Galaxis (formerly Ether Cards), actor and artist Val Kilmer is launching KAMP KILMER, a virtual space where a community can come together to share ideas and collaborate on art, film, music and literary projects without limitations of space and time. Applications are now open at KampKilmer.io for collaboration opportunities.
"I wanted to create an enclave in which all of us bohemians and pirates, actors, poets, photographers, musicians, filmmakers and academics can congregate, connect and make things with me," says Kilmer. "I searched for the ability to enable projects that could evolve and continue beyond my lifetime, all of our lifetimes. I asked: what if the project could run autonomously for generations to come? I call this realm KAMP KILMER."
One of Val's visual art pieces parses the name GOD out in multiple panels. This concept will be the first KAMP KILMER project to use the Galaxis Art Engine, a new type of NFT that enables artists to collaborate with their community to create works that can continuously evolve over time. KAMP KILMER is offering a free NFT for a limited time (purchasers only pay gas fees) that will unlock future utility, including presale access to the GOD PANELS collection to be released in April.
GOD PANELS NFTs leverage elements of creative collaboration and gamification, to produce ever-evolving, “living” works of digital art. The project unfolds in two phases. The first, the Genesis Phase, is centered around the public sale of the initial GOD PANEL art pieces that Kilmer created. Once these pieces are sold, the project moves into the Expansion Phase where the number of pieces in the project increases through collaboration incorporating artists’ style and vision. Revenue from the first-generation derivative pieces is shared with Artist Collaborator. The project will continue to evolve, and the technology capabilities are enhanced and expanded.
"I am grateful to Galaxis for enabling my vision and creating a first-of-its-kind art engine that utilizes cutting-edge blockchain technology that enables the creation of collections of collaborative, dynamic, continuously evolving digital art pieces," says Kilmer. "Something that was simply not possible prior to the Web3, crypto world."
"Our founding team has been a part of the crypto and NFT space since their earliest days, and as much as we love NFTs, we also quickly saw they would have limited mainstream appeal if all they could be were pretty JPEGs," says Andras Kristof, chief executive officer and co-founder, Galaxis and Ether Cards. "The goal of Galaxis is to build a future for NFTs through code and community, and to make the laborious development of utility traits simple and available to everyone. We are proud to partner with KAMP KILMER and help lead this next evolution of community and NFTs from one-way, temporary transactions into a living, evolving and self-sustaining ecosystem."
