Started as a simple student and a fashion-industry worker in Russia (that’s how I apologize for my English), soon I’ve realised that the university system was simply producing a «so-called specialists" and I quit it - no regrets for that.
Luckily, after that I’ve occasionally joined a crew of open-minded people, who was making different kids of art, such as theather, music and a nice fat custom bicycles.
We were having a great time in our workshop called «Bicycle trust», which is located in an old soviet military bunker in a center of the city of Saint-Petersburg.
Altoghether we went on a festivals, such as FBI Amsterdam, where we’ve met a ton of a freakingly creative people from a different parts of the globe.
This tendency to unite a different personalities/minds on one flow I can see right now in a blockchain community, and it makes me so excitied!
I’m still deeply in love with a custom culture (our sailboat is also custom-build by the way), it gaves me the right kind of vibration, and was a leading line to my further experimenting.
Since we’re all come together in that time, the main idea of our little community start to form.
From very first russian custom culture festival called «White Nights Kustom Awards» to expirements with a soundsystems in a deep forest - It was all about craving for all possible freedom to create what you want without letting down other people around you, but colaborating with them.
But russian reality not always gives you a possibilities to do so. From one side it’s stimulating, but from another it makes you feel tired after a while. And a climat is sucks!
A change is as good as a rest, so we’e got a boat.
It may sound not so logical, but actually sailing vehicle it’s a perfect example of autonomy.
First of all, 71% of planet surface is water - and it’s eventually becoming more since the temperature is rising. So you can get to so much places with much less regulations on your way - thanks to maritime laws and big «boooooo!» to borders and burocracy machines.
Secondly, boat can have a renewable energy source on it - such as solar panels, wind generators and kinetic panels - which is also a field for an endless experiments, since this kid of tech is on rise nowadays.
And the wind is free, so you can enjoy your journey much longer than in other cases and having more comfort at the same time.
So that’s how Dolce far Niente project happens in our lives.
It’s a seafaring community experiencing custom adventures, beach parties, and sort of a gonzo-experiments, searching for more of a soulmates.
We spent around 5 years doing so, made our way from Sweden to Canary islands, spreading the preciousness of new ideas and getting it from others.
And we’re not going to stop here - some concepts may evolve in bigger things.
That’s happening with MARCO now - it’s an idea of autonom self-regulating decentralised maritime platform, which includes some important points:
generating and sharing an information - about navigation or sertain locations - because we think it should be free
having a possibility to register a boat using blockchain technology - to make it as easy and yet trustworthy as possible
popularization of living on a water - in a lot of places it can change things for the better drasticly, especially in a future.
If you have a questions about it - don’t hesitate to ask it in comments!
We’re looking forward to start one more curious and quiet ambitious project this autumn: it’s The Essence of Green Project - a scientific and practical facility focused on developing, promoting, and connecting sustainable and renewable ideas to solve the urgent problems with a joint efforts.
It’s services could range from renewable energies, recycling, eco-friendly building and construction materials to ecological gardening and healthy living.
Also it’s specialized in planning, consulting and assisting projects in all aspects of their growth in part or total.
There is some more - a possibility of working with the leading companies and universities to improve what already exists now.
The Essence of Green Project is going to be placed on La Gomera island, Spain.
All sort of suggestions is welcome, so you can tell us what you want and we will help you to develop it and install in a whole system if possible.
What I want to do besides being a part of all this goodness, is to picture it all step by step from the beginning, creating sort of a visual log. (for now it's on russian, but i have english sub in it)
Probably, cause I’m from this last generation of dinosaurus, who was so happy when the VHF-camera first gets in my hands, and then cross all the way to the camera of my smartphone. And it still gets me all the time!
Guess I can call myself a researcher of all sorts of freedom which I can get with it.
Where is a perfect place to post all this?
And now we have Steemit - and I get this tangling feeling - like seeng a starry sky at the open ocean - feeling of a big, but not yet-so-discovered potential of such a concept.
Is it truly the place where we don’t need gurus? Well, it’s all about community,
like it says in an old indian proverb -
those who tell stories, rules the world.
What a time to be alive!
