We recently introduced 3D NFTs to Foundation, opening the door for artists to share their work in the round and cross-dimensionally. Already, we’ve seen so many artists pushing the boundaries of the medium with their creations—from a strawberry with a face, to a fantastic piece of furniture, to a weightless bust, to a hologram of Pussy Riot.
3D NFTs enable both creators and collectors to expand how we experience and relate to digital art. Many artists are experimenting with the possibilities of 3D objects for the first time and there are also new ways for collectors to explore their 3D artworks in AR—including showcasing their collection in the metaverse, and visualizing their works in any IRL space, anywhere in the world.
While the word “cyberspace” has come to be associated with the sites we access through our screens, they don’t capture the range of immersive, hybrid experiences that will emerge as the metaverse takes shape. Right now, experimenting with 3D NFTs is a way to imagine what’s possible as we enter a new blended reality where physical and digital dimensions coalesce.
Creators, show us what’s possible with 3D NFTs:
Mint a 3D NFT (in GLB or GLTF format) by Friday, September 17
List your NFT on Tuesday, September 21
Select submissions will be featured in New Dimensions World, where we will be showcasing the most imaginative, wild, and boundary-pushing 3D NFTs.
For the month of September, select 3D NFTs will be highlighted across our homepage, newsletters, Instagram, and Twitter.
Collectors, help visualize the emerging metaverse:
