Corn is one of the most important crops in Mexico, both culturally and economically. It is its birthplace. There are 64 different corn breeds that exist in the country, each with its unique features and characteristics. These plants have played a crucial role in the history, culture, and economy of Mexico. The rich diversity of this native plant has been adapted and maintained thanks to the effort and practices of environmentalists, farmers, and indigenous populations.
Cristobal Ascencio Ramos will create an NFT collection of 3D models of each of the 64 different corn breeds that exist in Mexico to highlight the significance of corn and its diversity. The 3D models will be designed to showcase each breed’s unique features and characteristics. Each model will be a unique representation of a specific breed, and there will be only one NFT per corn breed.
The creation process will involve a collaboration with experts in the corn industry, agriculture, and cultural heritage. The team will work together to research, design, and create 3D models of the different breeds using photogrammetry techniques. It will also involve the participation of local communities and farmers who will provide information and knowledge about the different breeds and their cultural and agricultural significance.
