Teaser video of the 360° exhibition in Somnium Space

The exhibition tells the story from the perspective of the early awareness in the (digital) womb. The fertilized egg, the creation of organic life, the safety of the sacred sphere and the vortex, the end of the beginning a.k.a. the beginning of the end, the portal to life itself.

5 different artworks = 5 NFTs = 5 platforms

The floor plan of the exhibition guides the visitor towards the 5 artworks, each minted as a different edition NFT each on a different platform accross multiple blockchains.

5/5 edition : “Trinket of Miniverse 20–12–2022”

This little orb is reflecting the original blueprint data of “Miniverse 20–12–2022”. It was created in ‘Orbs of Life’ a collection of sacred orbs.

These low res. glb marble-like representations are created as if they were items in a toy store.

10/10 edition : “Duality”

As you can see the potential of this 24K equirectangular construction is endless, it contains symbology for almost anything life has to offer us.

This snapshot reminds us of that specific moment in creation — inside the womb — where the fertilized egg recently started it’s journey as an ever dividing cell. Here you can see the ongoing transition from sacred geometry into the organic form.

1 of these 10 editions will be send to the owner of this original 360NFT created at KnownOrigin.

20/20 edition : “The End vs The Beginning”

After spending 9 months in the womb we prepare the descent to enter the portal to life on earth.

I hope it is obvious by now I have been using the visuals of these digital wombs to tell the story about life / (ego)death / birth, meditation and cosmic awareness. This derivate shows us this “wormhole in space”, the portal to life on earth.

1 of these 20 editions will be send to the collector of the original 360NFT created at KnownOrigin.

What’s even more :

This #360NFT created on KnownOrigin is 100% compatible with Somnium Space VR.

In Somnium Space VR — and perhaps in multiple VR platforms in the future — you can just drag and drop this NFT onto your parcel where it will appear as a 3D sphere —ready to enjoy in a virtual reality environment in the metaverse.
