On March 3rd, 2023 there will be the launch of a printed and digital edition of “RIPHEN: The Death and Rebirth of a Decentralized Cultural Movement”, a book by Yuki Ama (@yukiamasan) – Creative Director of Valuart and Fakewhale.
“It has been almost a year since the demise of Hic et Nunc, and the Tezos community is still trying to figure out what happened. But one thing is certain: the sudden demise of Hic et Nunc was a unique event in the history of digital art, and we are here to celebrate it.”
Throughout the book, Yuki Ama recounts the most impactful moments of Hic et Nunc through an extensive curation of artworks that illustrate the emergence, demise, and final rebirth of a decentralized cultural movement rooted in a passionate community that continues to embody its values of inclusion, experimentation and diversity to this day.
Full disclosure coming soon.
