Korridor is collaborating with artist Ditte Ejlerskov, who has written THE RANT - a book containing an artistic reaction to the development of blockchain technology based on Ejlerskov’s own practice. Together we have developed a digital strategy for the book. You can buy it as a physical paper version, of course, but also as an NFT. If you obtain the NFT, you not only get the digital book but also get access to co-write future versions of the book together with us.
THE RANT is an artistic vision that connects our physical and digital world and leads the way into a possible future where our spirit and bodies are as much part of the technological revolution as the upcoming decentralized internet.
"Central banking and the history of money, reincarnation and astrology, art, tech, neo-financing, and crypto, plus the possibilities of our existence being a simulation? I am willing to consider all possible angles on life at this point. There is nothing simple about the transitory era we are living in. It is all intertwined. The same technology that can save us all can enslave us if it is not handled wisely."
The future of books is manifold. Therefore, we publish the text both in a traditional physical book format and digitally on the blockchain. As an added feature, the digital version gives access to co-write future versions of the book, making the reader the future writer and vice versa. Read more below.
The Rant paper book is written in English and published by Forlaget Aftryk. The Rant digital book is published by Korridor, Ditte Ejlerskov & Ctrl+Alt+Delete Books.

Want to own the digital version and earn the right to co-write the future version?
Buy one of the 100 limited edition digital version published as a non-fungible token (NFT) here, and become a co-author.
When you own one of the 100 NFTs, you can join the co-writing process and co-write future version(s) of the book.
This takes place from March 8-21, 2023, and you join by sending us an email on hey(a)korridor.digital to receive further instructions. Please include the hash of the transaction for validation.
The co-writing takes place in three online sprints where everyone who registers will meet each other, as well as meet Ditte Ejlerskov and the Korridor crew. The whole group will then jointly rewrite all or some parts of the book - it is up to you to decide what you want to rewrite. You are free to prepare alternative snippets in advance or simply engage ad-hoc in dialogue with fellow co-writers to brainstorm, discuss, and carry out changes during the sprints.
The sprints take place in the following time slots:
Session 1: Tuesday, March 14, from 5-7 pm CET
Session 2: Tuesday, March 21, from 8-10 pm CET
Session 3: TBA
You are free to join all three sessions, or just one or two of them.
After the sprints, the new version of the book will be re-released as a digital NFT version on Mirror.xyz, with proceeds from NFT sales shared among all active contributors.
We look forward to engaging with you and learning more about your aspirations for the future version of the book.
