Ash Chapter Two: Metamorphosis - Collection | OpenSea


Disclosure that we have bought into this project since recording. Early news always shared on our discord: 



[00:00:00] Today on all about affordable NFTs, we have an affordable project. What is this? A limited edition episode? Well, here's the deal? Well, let's just be honest. Sometimes we get so excited about the news and the theme, and we've talked so much that we decided to just pull out this awesome project that you found for us.

[00:00:19] The Ash chapter two metamorphosis. It's just very exciting. All right, let's get.

[00:00:24] Andrew, what do you have for us? The Ash chapter two.

[00:00:27] Metamorphosis. Yeah. Yeah. We were discussing this a little bit in the discord. There were a few other people in there as well. The listeners, I assume discussing this one.

[00:00:37] So this is an Ash Ash chapter two from, so it's a collaboration between. Artists APOC Paak pack pack. And he always a struggle with how to say that I was in a number of other artists. Ones that we've mentioned here include coldy DK motion is make some really cool pieces. Those are at a much higher floor.

[00:01:00] Let's see, Sarah, the Sarah show is a one that was in an early Sotheby's auction. There's a. Quite a few other well-known artists in here. Sarah Zucker is actually the name. She goes by BRAF, Rossetti, mad dog Jones. A lot of well-known artists motion and still artists. I fell. I think these are all motion pieces.

[00:01:22] So the floor right now is at 0.27. And like I said, there's a number of different artists. So there's the, the floor is quite different for various artists. The artists that I just mentioned. Sarah, as a Ducker has actually some pieces right around the floor. Very in her style, she does a lot with kind of like retro video and kind of glitch art

[00:01:45] that she does is that

[00:01:46] she, I believe she actually.

[00:01:48] I wouldn't call it glitch sharp. She does. She uses kind of an old recording equipment, old like VHS and recording equipment to make a lot of her pieces of this looks a little bit less looks more uniform than that. I actually wanted to get . Analog press it's video, digital animation, video feedback, and analog processing on VHS.

[00:02:08] So in a lot of her works, you'll, she'll actually show her with like old CRT styles monitors on recording this stuff. You know, I think she's got a pretty cool process interesting here that someone actually has a, an offer just slightly below the, the floor. So see, there is interest in this piece and pocket.

[00:02:28] Is isn't going to leave the, the the space anytime soon. Actually has another dropout right now that uses let's say an earlier nifty piece to make new NFTs and has done a lot of just creative uses of the blockchain and NFTs. So I think that this is one that will be. It won't be forgotten about.

[00:02:51] And like I said, there's a lot of, a lot of cool artists in here. It's amazing. I don't understand this at all. How did all these folks get roped together? I mean, pulled together to do this collection and what is,

[00:03:01] yeah, it's good question. You know, I hadn't heard much about it. And I was a little bit surprised just because I feel like I often get word of some, at least holding things from there, from the discord there.

[00:03:11] Although I have, haven't been quite as active on that one recently, but You know, so he's got some pieces there. Those are a little bit higher for the last I looked at around 0.6. Nope, Nope, Nope. Down to 0.4, but I've been waiting on those one. I've had my, I have a big Colby collector and I feel like I may need to, to add this one to my collection.

[00:03:32] It's pretty cool piece, very much in his style of using video to kind of zoom in and out of a piece, but kind of travel through the piece a bit. It says life is hard. Although I should note that most of the artists have two versions of their pieces, one being the more common version and one, a more rare piece.

[00:03:53] You know, take a look at that when you're looking at, you know, if you are looking at these, you know, in case in case a holder, doesn't quite realize what they have. I have seen some people miss. Some assets maybe just not quite realizing that they have the more rare version. So take a look at these.

[00:04:11] They're not flying right now, but there's definitely interest the floor has moved, or I should say the floor, the, the volume has been pretty, has been fairly significant and a lot of pieces have been snatched up. But you've got. That'll look through these a bit, figure out which artists you're interested in and kind of look at the various floors at, for those artists.

[00:04:31] You know, like I said, it's about 0.2, seven floor right now, overall for the collection. And there's a couple at that price. Like I said Sarah Ducker's down, there is one that sticks out to me. And I'm sure there's some others there as well. So who, who

[00:04:45] curated that, who curated

[00:04:46] these artists? I assume that it was pock pack again.

[00:04:50] Sorry, I don't know which way to say that whoever is behind that. And I, you know, I don't know if that's a team or a single person. It is a, you know, that is an anonymous artists. I assume that they, they reached out and actually worked with all of these artists to put this together, but it's an impressive list.

[00:05:07] Let's see. There's 30 different, the who's

[00:05:09] who of like collections that I like artists that I've been trying to like add. Slowly over time. And it's so hard to find individual artists across so many platforms now and buried in and hidden in a lot of these collections. This is really exciting here.

[00:05:25] Here's like an activity go to this project. The, the Ash chapter two metamorphosis go through the artists and just research them because each one has gotten. Sorry, I'm going to withhold my current statement. Just say everyone, except for no offense, Paris Hilton, which I put a pause on. There's a lot of who's who in like a really great artists in terms of the narrative of old-school and FTE art with a capital a and this, this,

[00:05:51] yeah.

[00:05:52] And I think it's really great to, it's a really great representation of. I mean of a huge array of artists and it's the pieces are so their style. I mean, it's pretty obvious some of these, they just stick out to me as being that artist and definitely learning some new ones here, but the ones that I know, I mean, they've done great pieces just because it's a, a collaboration or a, a collective collection here definitely doesn't mean that these artists have given less effort.

[00:06:20] Really cool pieces. I like the art here, I think gets I think that they, there is a good possibility that or a good light say possibly it's very likely that the artists are going to stick around and be interested in the collection. Won't be just forgotten about over time.

[00:06:36] I definitely agree with that.

[00:06:38] Cause guess what happens in the next collection somewhere? And then over time, there's going to be, I have to believe right when we get more cross chain and more ability, there's going to be better ways of looking at an artist's sort of work as a overall collection together and being pieced together.

[00:06:55] And how those are, how those are curious. Then, you know, you get into that sort of 10 year horizon of saying like, all right, where, where do you see things going? And that's another narrative that I've picked up from you. Definitely. It was like, don't forget the capital capital, a art. Thanks. This is epic.

[00:07:11] Full disclosure. Do you own any of these

[00:07:13] yet? I do not own any of this yet. You know, some of these moved quickly while I was traveling, I kept looking at them and kept seeing the pieces I wanted to do for gone, but going to have to go back through, I think it looks like a. Some prices are coming back down a little now.

[00:07:27] So I'm going to keep my eye out and maybe put some bids in. I mean, this is the

[00:07:32] big, biggest difference between like, Hey, we've got a plan game coming and here's my PFP. Like this is just not that. And it tends to be like a little counter cyclical. And when money gets sucked out into these other products, You see, like a lot of actual art dropping and frankly, I, I own some and you own a lot, and I've watched some of those numbers being like, okay, I don't get it.

[00:07:55] This is like, you know, a hackathon piece or, you know, this is a Colby piece. I don't understand why. I mean, like, I don't really care. I'm holding it for awhile. I mean,

[00:08:03] Yeah, we'll see what happens. But I do think there's artists have been getting a lot of attention recently with some of these drops being a park.

[00:08:12] So few, a few OSHA's has had a big drop. We saw copy. You've got a couple of those. Yeah. You got a couple of those. It's interesting. The price has come down quite a bit. 1.7

[00:08:24] and came right back down. It's that mint like you can

[00:08:27] get in on it. Yeah. Yeah. So th that is interesting. I'm sure that there's going to be opportunities there.

[00:08:32] And that is one, I don't know. I like seeing the artists are doing some of these these other projects, and I like that because like you said, they stick around if people that have proven they just going to drop a project and leave and, you know, I think there's also a possibility that these could be used for future drops in some way.

[00:08:49] Oh, interesting. I mean, it's chapter two. What was chapter one? Was there

[00:08:53] a chapter. There was carbon, I believe was the

[00:08:58] name of it.

[00:08:59] Chapter one was quite carbon. So yes, I don't know a lot about that one. Actually. It was. I believe it gave you access to this drop early. And I don't know if that actually made other ones, the other drop that he has outright now. Mass, I believe it is it's. I started. The mechanics of that one. And that's, that's interesting, it's based on the earlier crop, but then you put these together based on the number that you have at the end of Mensa, new NFP.

[00:09:30] So a lot of interesting things going on with what he's doing there. And, you know, I, I, like I said, I don't know that these will be used in a future one or not, but I do know that he's come back to, he, she. The artist's bay, they will go to the kid like puck, puck pack, canning sticks. All right, you're going to, you're going to say, I'm going to help So back to our, to the projects.

[00:09:53] So I th I think they're cool pieces. Go check it out. We'll have a look in the notes.

[00:09:57] Just, I mean, I looked up the Ash chapter one carbon, so the current one is Metamora chapter twos, metamorphosis, and like Ash chapter one, carbon four is sitting at 2.5, a lot less sort of diversity of artists, for sure.

[00:10:11] So I think the, the next one really let a lot of. Uh, Folks into it and then the activity on that you know, pretty, pretty steady I'd say. Yeah. And that came out you know, call it late January. Thanks. Very cool project.
