WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT A MASS OF DIGITAL CLAY COULD HAVE A MORE INTERESTING OUTCOME?

Each KUTO are generated by a combination of countless different elements such as extravagant hairstyles, body piercings, eccentric sunglasses, bizarre hats, weird goatees, and mustaches, just to mention a few.

The project

The MANY LIVES project aims to create 3D digital clay characters, under the name “KUTO”, all with unique appearances and personalities.
Each “KUTO” is generated by a combination of countless elements such as extravagant hairstyles, body piercings, eccentric sunglasses, bizarre hats, weird goatees, and mustaches, just to mention a few. At this point, Artificial Intelligence analyses the characteristics that make up the “KUTO” and creates unique stories based on 17 different literary genres and 239 locations around the world. We are talking about a massive pool of approximately 185 million single characters and 753 billion stories.
 
We selected for this project a total of 7777 NFTs to be launched in different stages of which the first batch of 1000 will be tied up to a limited edition of the book containing all the stories and many lives of “KUTO” and a legendary edition of the collectible cards.

Kuto’s life #0014

Location: Cameroon · Literary genre: Legend
SADNESS · BROWN BOWLER HAT · OFF BLACK HAIR · NO GLASSES  · WHITE SHIRT · BALBO BEARD · NO PIERCING

There was once a man named Kuto who lived in Cameroon. His life was filled with sadness and he always wore a brown bowler hat. His hair color was off black and he had a Balbo beard. He always wore a white shirt. One day, Kuto went to the market to buy some food for his family. He saw a beautiful woman there and decided to talk to her. Unfortunately, she didn’t understand him because she spoke only French. Kuto didn’t know how to speak French, so he just smiled at her and walked away. Kuto continued on with his life, but he couldn’t forget that woman. He started learning French so that he could go back to the market and talk to her again. After months of studying, Kuto finally felt confident enough to go back and talk to the woman again. When he arrived at the market, she wasn’t there anymore; however, he did see her walking down the street with another man arm-in-arm.

Kuto’s life #0008

Location: New Caledonia · Literary genre: Drama
MELANCHOLY · BUZZ HAIRCUT · LIGHT BLONDE HAIR · AVIATOR SILVER EYEGLASSES · WHITE ARABIC SHIRT · MUTTON CHOPS · SILVER EARRING ON LEFT LOBE

The Kuto’s life was filled with melancholy. Kuto was in New Caledonia, and his buzz haircut made him look like a different person. His hair color was light blonde, and he wore aviator silver eyeglasses. He had a mutton cops, and his silver earring on left lobe shone brightly. He wore a white arabic shirt, which matched well with his light complexion. However, despite all of these physical changes, Kuto’s heart was still the same. He still loved music and art, but he found it difficult to express himself in words. Even though he had many friends in New Caledonia, he felt like they didn’t really understand him. Kuto often thought about his home back in Japan. He missed the cherry blossoms and the sound of the waves crashing against the shoreline. He even missed his parents arguing sometimes. But most of all, he missed feeling truly alive. In Japan, everything seemed so much more vibrant and exciting somehow; but here in New Caledonia it all just felt so…bleak by comparison.

Kuto’s life #0010

Location: Côte d’Ivoire · Literary genre: Horror
SATISFACTION · CREW HAIRCUT · MEDIUM GREY HAIR · NO GLASSES  · BLACK SHIRT · SHAVED FACE · NO PIERCING

Kuto was born in a small village in Côte d’Ivoire. He was the only child of his parents, who were both farmers. Kuto’s life was filled with satisfaction. He had a crew haircut and his hair color was medium grey. His face was shaved and he wore a black shirt. Kuto’s parents were very proud of him and they loved him very much. One day, when Kuto was out playing with his friends, he saw a group of boys from another village bullying a smaller boy. Kuto didn’t like this at all and he decided to stand up for the little boy. He fought off the bullies and protected the little boy until help arrived. When word got back to his parents about what he had done, they were even more proud of him than before. Since that day, Kuto has been known as a hero in his village.

Kuto’s life #0002

Location: Cameroon · Literary genre: Realistic fiction
SURPRISE · BLACK BEANIE HAT · BLONDE HAIR · NO GLASSES · GREEN AND BLACK V-NECK T-SHIRT · SHAVED FACE · NO PIERCING

The sun was setting in Cameroon, and Kuto was getting ready for bed. He had been living here for six months, and he loved it. The people were friendly and the food was delicious. But every night, as he crawled into his mosquito net-covered bed, he couldn’t help but miss his home in America. Tonight, as Kuto settled down to sleep, he heard a noise outside his window. It sounded like someone was trying to climb up the side of the house. He sat up silently in bed and listened intently. Sure enough, there it was again; someone definitely climbing up the wall outside his window! Kuto’s heart started pounding in his chest as he realized that there might be an intruder about to break into his room! He quickly grabbed a flashlight from under his pillow and shone it out the window just in time to see a black-clad figure disappearing over the top of the wall surrounding his property! He leapt out of bed and ran to the front door, flinging it open just in time to see a shadowy figure running away down the street! Kuto raced after him through winding streets until finally cornering him in an alleyway between two houses. As he shone his flashlight on the man’s face, he saw that it wasn’t a man at all; it was a monkey wearing a black beanie hat!
