Welcome to the 113th volume of WizeWorld: a collection of stories and sounds to round out your week, pique your curiosity, and widen your wizdom.
This week’s theme is evolution. Between a group that saves sea life from ghost nets, the blending of NFTs and iced tea and photographs that capture the incredible world we inhabit, we’re focusing on the ways technology and the natural world can come together to make positive change.
We’ll be looking at:
- Our NFT collaboration with Billion Buns
- An interview with Garret GMAN Louie
- Fishing nets turned into woven wildlife art
- Robotaki’s The Remixes
- 2022’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year winners
World Tea News featured our innovative collaboration with Billion Buns’ Chairman Ting. This selection of limited edition Sparkling Mango iced tea cans showcased Ting’s exclusive NFT creations. And we plan to keep making waves in the world of tea, so stay tuned.
Brand manager, promoter and much more: Garret GMAN Louie sat down with us last year to chat about what drives him. Read on to learn why his parents thought he’d make a good lawyer, what he loves about fashion and why he prefers Wize to more sugar-laden alternatives.
Abandoned fishing nets, often known as “ghost nets”, drift along in the water and tangle up helpless sea life in their wake. Ghost Net Collective has worked to find these nets and turn them into art that captures the very lives they would otherwise have taken.
Montreal DJ Robotaki brings us The Remixes: a mellow, often surrealist blend of tracks that he’s given his unique spin. Perfect for winding down or chilling out. Pairs well with a hot cup of Earl Grey on a cold day.
Have a scroll through 2022’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year winners to get inspired by, and often overawed with, the fierce beauty of nature. From the micro (like a tangle of bees) to the macro (whales entwining underwater), these images remind us why the earth is worth fighting for.
