Spotlight
Today in the Spotlight section, we are taking a deeper look in Obscura’s Carousel Curated (an excerpt from the Obscura Journal).
Carousel Curated #1
Carousel Curated #1
Carousel Curated, Obscura’s first community project, features a collection of found slides minted as NFTs. Co-founded by Felix Denomme and Oliver Dahl, this ongoing project aims to become the world’s largest archive of found slides, immortalizing moments of the past onto the blockchain that were otherwise left to fade away. Each “drop” of curated, tagged, and cataloged slides will contain 80 photographs, matching the tray capacity of the original Kodak Carousel.
Felix and Oliver met within the NFT photography community after being selected for Obscura’s WHO WE ARE grant and discovered their mutual interest in found slides. Both had the idea to launch their own NFT collection and decided to come together to create a collection of found slides that anyone could contribute to.
Found slides typically date back to the mid-late 20th century, a time just before the internet was invented and mass adopted. Oliver mentions that one of the goals of Carousel Curated is to “preserve and transport slides from the pre-internet age directly into web3 on the blockchain.” By merging the past and present, this ongoing collection will rescue abandoned slides by combining them with the emergence of NFTs, preserving them long beyond their physical shelf life.
RAW has now 4 great additions to our growing collection: Carousel Curated #1, #16, #23 and #60.
