Project: Geometron

An experimental NFT project inspired by the mathematical universe hypothesis
"Their vast amount of knowledge, design ideas, and forward-thinking nature stood out. Extremely communicative and not afraid to speak up about their ideas. was accommodating in every possible way. Every project was treated as if it was one of their own."
Geometron is an NFT project, designed by Çağıl Aygen, based on cosmologist Max Tegmark’s Mathematical Universe Hypothesis (MUH), “Everything in the universe – humans included– is part of a mathematical structure. Mathematical existence equals physical existence, and all structures that exist mathematically exist physically.” It means math does not just describe the universe but makes the universe, so the designer argues that there are no differences between a computer-based world and a physical world. Based on the fact that everything in the virtual world exists in “binary” –– the language of 1’s and 0’s, that makes the metaverse existence part of the universe. The art project reflects the infinite universe cycle between these two worlds.

The collection’s first series, Platonic Solids, is limited to 5 artworks. They are prominent in the philosophy of Plato. He associated each of the four elements –earth, air, water, and fire– with a regular solid. Earth was associated with the Hexahedron⁽¹⁾, Air with the Octahedron⁽²⁾, Water with the Icosahedron⁽³⁾, and Fire with the Tetrahedron⁽⁴⁾. In the fifth Platonic solid, the Dodecahedron⁽⁵⁾, Plato obscurely remarked, “…the god used [it] for arranging the constellations on the whole Heaven “.
The main concept is shaped by the idea of entering the universe of Geometron, once people land on the official website. Therefore, from the color palette to typography, sections to content, the user journey (UX/UI) is designed to give this experience at maximum level. While the NFTs are the project’s main products, the website is the one-and-only crucial element for the story-telling.
