$MOOD: The World’s A Little Blurry

What started as a tweet thread about Billie Eilish, R.J. Cutler's recent Eilish documentary, and affect theory is now becoming a long-form, multimedia essay including commissioned illustrations that will exist within the NFT essay as NFT artworks. I’ll be using Mirror to crowdfund this essay, the funds from which will allow me time to research and write, hire an editor to assure the essay’s quality, and commission NFT illustrations.
