Whim is a collection of 10,000 unique mindsets. Each Whim contains a randomised distribution of 7 universal emotions:
Anger, Disgust, Fear, Happiness, Love, Sadness & Surprise

COMBINING SCIENCE & ART FOR A BETTER WORLD
Humanity faces scientific challenges more than ever. Climate change, food security and emerging diseases are three of the most critical issues impacting communities. We need unprecedented cooperation to tackle these complex issues.
However, securing funding for research is not a simple task, especially when establishing new collaborative research programs. Whim aims at selling cryptoart (NFTs) to create a new fund that would financially support science. The Fund will support the creation of a new research institute on plant cells while also financially contributing to the artistic community with the Whim Memory Board.
Phase I – Supporting science using Whim sales
Phase II– Supporting art with the Whim Memory Board
Life on Earth relies on plant cells, and we’d better act now before it’s too late!

I am a plant scientist, and I truly believe in open science and collaborative research. My interests are driven by fundamental sciences, mostly related to the cellular and molecular biology of plant cells.
I pursue collective knowledge, and collaborative science is at the heart of my strategy to find revolutionary solutions for urgent problems facing today’s societies, including climate change, food security and emerging diseases.
ACCESS THE WHIM MEMORY BOARD
Owners of Whim mindsets will be able to upload their memories onto the Whim Memory Board. The Board will contain 10,000 memories associated with each Whim mindset.
Once the Board is completed and contains 10,000 memories, it will be sold as a single NFT (auction). Funds raised from the sale will be 100% distributed to support artistic initiatives! Whim mindset owners will decide how the money is distributed through a voting system.
