Do you want it? A place where all potential creative tools are collected? With direct links and short explanations — for you to decide where to start your art? Well, here it is — an ongoing index of all creative uses of AI. At least those being covered by Merzazine. So without boring introductions…
There were poems written as chains — Renga (連歌), Japanese collaborative poetry. There were also poems being minted as NFT. But with the new project Etherpoems, digital innovator and artist (Digital)ArtChick (artchick.eth) created something innovative and non-existent till now.
(DISCLAIMER: and I write these words, not because I took part in the project (I did). Following the NFT art scene, I can admit — it’s indeed a novel approach.
The project democratizes poetry writing and is a beautiful example of collaborative creativity.
Some poets delivered humanly written works…
My father was a professional writer and photojournalist. He documented (1950ies-1990ies) the life and culture of the USSR and Russia. As we came to Germany, he hadn’t stopped. He photographed and wrote about Germany till his last days. He left me a huge photo archive after he passed away some years ago.
Revisiting his photo archive, I realized one thing:
A photographer takes pictures of places, persons, and situations he or she had experienced at that moment. This photographer shares memories with a beholder, who’ll contemplate these photos at a particular time in the future.

Dadaism in Japan was a powerful movement. It’s a pity, it remains unknown, in opposite to European, French, or American Dada. Japanese Dadaists — and Avant-Garde in general — is precisely researched and elaborated. At least in Japan: I’ve written about bookshelves full of Avant-Garde books in Japanese bookstores.
One of the most prominent Japanese Dada poets was Takahashi Shinkichi:
“the only Zen poet in modern Japanese literature”,
like poetry critic Makoto Ueda once said (Makoto Ueda Modern Japanese Poets and the Nature of Literature p.335 Stanford University Press, 1983)
Lazy Minting is an ex excellent thing if you have no hurry and publish your art passively. To showcase, forget, and be remembered when your NFT is occasionally found and purchased. OpenSea is perfect for this repository. Nevertheless, an artist's life consists of creating for a silo and continuous communication, co-inspiration, and ideas exchange.
And then there is that alarming environmental factor, which gives you headaches with every new-minted NFT (even if OpenSea is still the best Ethereum-running platform compared to Foundation, Rarible, and Co. with their high gas fees, etc.).
