About Phantom Astronaut

// Phantom Astronaut //

By supporting me you help to bring new immersive art / music installations to life. In return you receive not only updates on those projects, but a monthly culture zine, exclusive podcast episodes featuring thought-provoking guests, and a free monthly NFT of original art.

Phantom Astronaut (Dekker Dreyer) is an artist working in film, music, visual art, & immersive media. His projects typically focus on folklore, dreams, consciousness, technology, and the connections between them. He’s been called a “VR pioneer” by MovieMaker and Entrepreneur magazines. His filmmaking career began creating digital video art to accompany Naqoyqatsi, the feature film from Godfrey Reggio, Philip Glass, and Steven Soderbergh. Now based in Los Angeles, Dekker’s projects have been showcased around the world at festivals like Slamdance and Art Basel. His latest works include a 2021 music video for Snowblood’s “I’m Ready” which premiered in Paper Magazine and his animated immersive projection show Joy Ride which recently ended a run at Catalonia Hotels (Spain). His immersive music installations have been praised by Blumhouse and other industry heavyweights. His original interactive scripted series The Depths premiered as a featured watch on Sony Smart TVs. His feature film The Arcadian has become an underground favorite after a limited European theatrical run in 2018. In addition to his original work he’s collaborated with legends like Devo, Bootsy Collins, and Disturbed. Dekker was part of the first class of Snap Inc. official augmented reality lens creators. Phantom Astronaut continues to produce live experiences, digital art, and records while pushing the boundaries between mediums.

What am I making?

Podcasts: A bi-weekly show where we investigate big ideas about society, art, spirituality, and technology, as well as intimate, personal, experiences from guests of all walks of life. Patrons get access to all episodes and can vote on future topics.

Art, Film, and Music: I'm constantly creating and I want to share what I make with you by giving patrons access to monthly NFTs minted on the clean Tezos blockchain. 

Zine: I'm an advocate for human curation. In your daily life the social and search algorithms are feeding you what to read and watch. In the zine I present the most interesting things I, and guest editors, have discovered; Articles, memes, art, films, and conversation threads. Also original essays, travelogues, and interviews. Some links and references can't be posted on social media because of content warnings; these range from artistic nudity to shining a light on right-wing extremist sites and activities. Even if you follow the Phantom Astronaut social feeds you'll want the digest. This magazine-style, visually clean, experience cuts the noise out of navigating the digital universe. It's like a xeroxed zine, but in epub and pdf form. No comment section, no ads... ever.



Why Support Phantom Astronaut?
The Phantom Astronaut Patreon is your invitation to help drag us all into a better timeline, but our society is transactional and dystopian, so this is where I make the case for how this benefits you in material ways.

  • Fight the Algorithm: Every day your feed narrows as algorithms make choices based on your behavior. The digest is a human-curated collection of links that break you free from that cycle in a visually clean format. 
  • Community: The Phantom Astronaut Discord isn't just for patrons, it's also for personally invited creators, writers, and assorted intellectuals. It's a place to discuss big ideas and speak candidly with a wide array of interesting people from around the world without the background noise of open social media platforms.
  • Greed: NFTs can build value and over time, with the help of our community, your Phantom Astronaut collection could potentially exceed the value of your patronage.
  • Spite: There are a LOT of people who hate the way I criticize right-wing nationalism, technological oligarchy, corporate culture, hustle culture, and other social systems. From my writing on transhumanism to Christian theocracy (cited in books like The Evangelicals You Don't Know by USA Today editor Tom Krattenmaker) I've pissed off thousands of people just by being intellectually honest. If you want to drive the people who perpetuate these toxic systems even crazier, all it costs you is the price of one latte a month.
  • Influence: Do you have a topic you're interested in hearing about, but there are no good media pieces on it? You get to vote on podcast episodes.
  • Attention: I've taught at a range of schools and conferences. People have paid thousands of dollars for these formal learning experiences. With live streams and AMAs you can get answers to questions on art, futurism, film, television, music, folklore, and social trends. 
  • Altruism: The more patrons I have, the more content I need to make, and I can't make it alone. Supporting this patreon helps support editors, moderators, and other team members which are added as we grow together.
  • Flexing: Money means so little to you that you don't even care what you spend it on, you just want that dopamine hit of knowing you're giving it away.
Disclaimer: Perks are perks of patronage, not goods being sold. Your patronage does not imply a sale between parties. All media presented in the digest is reproduced under fair use as commentary and links, credit, and any necessary consideration are made to the originators where known. Your patronage provides you access, not ownership. Podcasts and digest editions are not for resale. Placement in digests can't be purchased, no money is taken from creators to feature them or their works in the digest.
