TIMEPieces owners will be able to connect their digital wallets to our site and have unlimited access to TIME.com until TIME’s 100th anniversary in 2023. They will also receive exclusive invitations to some of our future events and in-person access. to a variety of exclusive digital experiences. We will also provide additional opportunities for owners of multiple rooms.
TIMEPieces celebrates the work of artists, which has been at the heart of the TIME brand for almost 100 years.
The artists in the TIMEPieces genesis collection come from a group organized by TIME Creative Director DW Pine. The group chosen to participate in TIMEPieces lives on almost every continent and uses a wide variety of approaches to their work, from photography to illustrations to paintings and more. Almost a quarter of them have already made covers for TIME. Half have never produced TVN. Some parts are stationary and others are animated. All are completely original at TIME and each piece in the collection is themed around the idea of ??Building a better future. ??

TIMEPieces is our latest foray into NFTs, this time with the goal of fostering community, loyalty and rewards as well. While many of the NFT drops that have occurred in the media space to date have focused on high-end one-off editions or multiple versions of collectibles, the release of TIMEPieces marks the first time that a major media brand takes a Web3 approach to building community. and using this technology as an innovative extension of our current digital subscription efforts.
Additionally, this collection will be made into a hardcover book available this holiday season and will also be on display at Dreamverse, the world’s premier NFT art and music festival, in New York City on November 4.
