The first-of-its-kind artwork series Winds of Yawanawa co-created by the Yawanawa and new media artist Refik Anadol, curated and commissioned as part of Impact One’s Possible Futures initiative, debuted in London as part of the September-long Annabel’s for the Amazon campaign.
Having already generated more than $3,500,000 through the sale of NFTs based on the work, the Winds of Yawanawa has become one of the highest valued and most successful NFT sales of 2023.
Among the prominent art collectors who acquired Winds of Yawanawa are Richard and Patricia Caring, Co-Founders of The Caring Family Foundation (TCFF), an organisation that combats deforestation in the Brazilian Amazonian rainforest through partnerships with local communities. With their purchase of Winds of Yawanawa, The Caring Family Foundation is extending its already significant engagement in the state of Acre, Brazil, as the Yawanawa community neighbours other communities supported by the ongoing work of the foundation.
Richard and Patricia Caring also serve as Co-Chairs of The Birley Clubs, which includes the member’s club Annabel’s in London, which hosts the annual “Annabel’s for the Amazon.” This event supports awareness and fundraising to benefit local Amazonian communities and reforestation efforts. As part of their 2023 campaign, one of the three Winds of Yawanawa museum-quality Data Sculptures was displayed at Annabel’s in London’s Mayfair district. The eight-minute-long piece immerses viewers into a fractalised rendition of Yawanawa cultural and natural heritage.
“At the peak of the digital age, this work reconnects to our natural heritage, sourcing its form and language from the Amazon rainforest, while raising funds for the Yawanawa and their stewardship of the rainforest, to give back. We are thrilled about Richard and Patricia’s support of ‘Winds of Yawanawa’ and the Possible Futures initiative, furthering the outstanding work The Caring Family Foundation is doing in the Amazon and the Brazilian State of Acre. The display of Winds of Yawanawa at Annabel’s very much embodies the level of international engagement and collaboration that is needed for a nature-positive future.”
– Mikolaj Sekutowicz, CEO of Impact One
Under its initiative Possible Futures, Impact One is partnering with Instituto Nixiwaka, an organisation that represents the Yawanawa communities of Aldeia Sagrada and Nova Esperança in Acre, Brazil, and manages the operations of key development projects. These initiatives support the long-term wellbeing and protection of the Yawanawa people and land and preserve cultural heritage through the construction of nature-positive developments in Yawanawa lands.
The NFT Data Paintings were dropped as the Genesis collection of the newly created Yawanawa & Refik Anadol ledger, minted using a unique smart contract to highlight the collaboration with the community and provide transparent insight into the distribution of the proceeds from the NFT sales.
