Dented Feels Gives Collectors the Power To Customize Their NFTs Through “Dented Dreams”
Serving as one of the industry’s first mechanisms that will allow for NFT holders to modify their genesis tokens with customized traits.
Dented Feels, an artist founded and emotionally-driven NFT PFP project, recently announced their launch of an NFT trait customization build — handing over the power of art generation to the collectors, while allowing them to own the original NFT and all its interchangeable art pieces.
Launched in February 2022 by artist and founder, Dentin Garrett, Dented Feels is an NFT collection that helps illustrate the emotions he had experienced as a rising artist, known as “Dented Feels” — resonating with many in throughout the community.
“My favorite part of the creative process for generative art collections is exploring trait combinations, finding beautiful visual metaphors that could be locked with certain combinations of traits. When the genesis collection was released, that explorative process ended. Final combinations are now locked in. This novel tech is designed to hand the keys of art generation over to the collectors. Allowing for literally billions of potential visual metaphors to be unlocked,” said Dentin Garrett, the artist and founder behind Dented Feels.
As a digital art project, Dented Feels utilizes pioneering blockchain technology and Solidity contracts to redefine what it means to be an artist and collector in the modern era.
The project’s newest build — “Dented Dreams” — will set the stage for the expansion of its Genesis NFT collection with “Mood Swings Volume 1,” giving collectors the ability to own multiple traits – “Mood Swings” – made by the artist, released for free, to combine them with any Dented Feels NFT.

With Dented Dreams, the project is revolutionizing the way we think and move forward when it comes to programmatically generated art and PFP collections as a whole. In most cases seen today, NFT PFP collections usually create an entirely separate collection inspired by their genesis collection, in which its holders will be airdropped for free or will have to purchase.
Dented Dreams creates a new narrative, where instead of building out a new collection, they are giving the holders the capabilities to customize and change the current traits of their existing NFTs — without destroying the original genesis token. This, according to its artist and founder, allows the collectors to further evolve their NFTs in helping transform their online identity — by connecting their ever changing state of being and emotions through their PFP art.
“The key to this build is the ability to take a generative collection that wasn’t designed for customization, and then repurposing it so that it can be deconstructed later on without destroying the original token. Doing this would build interest in the Genesis collection, by adding utility into the art and project ecosystem, by creating a new way to interact with your personal art collection,” said Garrett.
Although the art will be customized or “evolved,” Dented Feels ensures, “that original art piece will remain yours, and you will own every new piece that you combine to it.” In other words, the underlying technology allows for an individual to sell it as one collective piece or deconstruct it and continue collecting more traits to use in the future.
The official release of NFTs is planned for September. The first drop of Mood Swings “trading packs” will be 1st editions released for free and available via pre-order at the Dented Feels Reward Shop, a virtual storefront where collectors redeem Feels Points.
