Visioning Lab became curious about the crypto-art community so in November 2021, we launched the first piece of our NFT collection, Cities of Butterflies, on the KnownOrigin website. This animation, story, composite and co-production brought together our learning over the past 2 years.

We also raised funding from Innovate UK to explore the commercial potential for using the PopupView platform to support the capture of 3D NFTs.

Short NFT History

The ‘crypto art space’ is a mysterious phrase for the uninitiated. For those in the know, it is the most exciting and transformative opportunity for artists since the emergence of wealthy Italian art patrons in the 15th century. The difference between then and now is that artists want the freedom to create their own vision, rather than what patrons specify, and instead make the work available for sale through digital art platforms to be discovered by patrons who ‘get’ their work.
