*PolyOne is a Global One initiative.
The story of PolyOne began at the Citadel of Erbil, Kurdistan, not far from the banks of the mighty Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Kurdistan has always been on the losing side of history; a nation-state that is only a state of mind, that lives, in the hearts of its people.
Their Capitol is a living fortress, witness to our human story of civilization. It crowns the Temple ruins of the Goddess of Love & War...and Creation. The Sumerians called the Goddess Inana; later known as Ishtar, Aphrodite and Venus. Six thousand years ago our oldest recorded civilization called the Citadel "Urbilum." City of Four Gods. At this point, One.
Today, the Citadel of Erbil is at the center-point of a modern city of concentric circles. It rises on a tell, above a bustling Old Bazaar that was once a stop along the Silk Roads of commerce. PolyOne announced our modern marketplace with the largest outdoor NFT exhibition at the time. We projected NFT art onto the Citadel's mud-brick walls to cast light on our collective story at the intersecting point of Love and War... and Creation.
The point we are at today.
As story-tellers, we must understand our own tale. NFTs are the story of our time. They are the story for our time. And they tell our story, immutably, for all time. With the existential challenges we face, Time itself is our zeitgeist.
Create to Elevate.
We are literally at the point of Creation. Upon Shakespeare's Old Globe we built our "Field of Dreams." Now with this Genesis Orb we lift the curtain to unveil PolyOne's New World Stage. We built it so that they, meaning you, will come.
We come together to write the narrative and make our voices heard. Together. It's time to act.
Creators have the unique ability to reach across borders directly into our hearts or expanding our minds. It's been proven before that when artists unite, they can shift our collective consciousness.
We follow in the steps of those who came before us. We aren't the first to strive for this vision. But we're the first to have both the global necessity, and the connective and technological capability.
The genius of the Golden Age of film, Charlie Chaplin, had a vision of United Artists. From Tramp to Great Dictator, he dreamed of a better world. Together, we can enter the Golden Age of which he dreamed.
"We are such stuff as dreams are made on."
