The Line is a micro-verse to connect thousands of artists together in a single line filled with 1 million artworks. Yes... 1 million artworks.
One million is not an impossible goal if 3 - 4,000 artists add their collections to The Line. Already over 10,000 artworks have been added by the first 151 artists.
As we get closer to our goal, we will invite CNN's viewers in and say 'here, we made this.'
The Line is a fundamentally new way to experience art in a 3d space. It removes many of the barriers that made it more difficult than 2d environments most web users are accustomed too. It also solves many problems for artists and collectors.
1) Browsing art in The Line is effortless. No portals blocking art.
2) Navigating in The Line is easy. Two directions. Forward and back.
3) Big Screen artworks in The Line. No artificial walls restricting art size.
Why The Line is needed
It is time to get back to the art. The art is what sustains the culture of Web3.0. It is the very bedrock and foundational layer. You can read the whole tweet-thread below.
We are each a mere dot in this new metaverse world we are buidling. Together we become The Line.
The moment I first saw something like the Metaverse... ....Neo was introduced to the construct in The Matrix.
The ability to experience everything conjured up from white space felt freeing.
Yet early Metaverse worlds are suffering three problems.
1) They feel like kids games...
2) Are hard to navigate...or
3) Art is locked behind slow loading doors.
The Line fixes this. Walk forward. Return again. Experience way more art without portals getting in the way.
The Line is for artists to showcase 100+ artwork collections with clarity.
"Excited to be part of this epic project." @briancattelle
No distractions. No fuss. No skeumorphic virtual timber beams weighing heavily on your art. It is time to get back to the art.
At the end of The Line is a portal. The portal connects you to the next artist in The Line.
Nokia snake game fans will be able to connect the dots... ...with what we are attempting to buidl here.
If we each connect our curated part of the Metaverse together... ...The Line could become quite a substantial experience.
Thank you! love the concept so much!! @spydenator
