XR-NFTs are the most eclectic form of using 3D scanning telemetry, augmented reality, virtual reality, sound, and digital smell technology intertwined with the creativity of Jerome Peschard’s digital pop art. The NFT creations use blockchain technology to offer their user a one-of-a-kind sensorial digital asset experience.
Rush of Mars
To honor this new dawn of space travel, where the likes of Sir Richard Branson, Jeff Bezos, and Elon Musk are disrupting space travel and making it a reality for all humankind to one day travel to space, Jerome Peschard has created a limited-edition series of 50 XR-NFTs and 1 Digital-Physical Asset Based XR-NFT allegory entitled “Rush of Mars“.
The “Rush of Mars” allegory will feature a 150X150cm physical original artwork from pop artist Jerome Peschard. Jerome’s canvas of choice are rusty steel sheets from building construction sites pieced together to form the masterpiece. The creation has a neon greenish light on the words “Rush of Mars” the neon light will slowly flash 2-3 times, before an electric spark ignites the electrode gas in the neon, to light up the letters. Additionally, viewers will experience a humming sound that atoms make when getting electrically charged inside the vacuum tube.
From the greenish futuristic hue, with elements of 1950s fast-food signage, to a countdown of a rocket ship, electric futuristic vehicle, 60s style female model and flying saucers, including many hidden elements, gives us a true sense of the allegory of “Rush to Mars”.This physical masterpiece asset will have an NFC-Tag that can be scanned by any smartphone to open the XR-NFT, it will show multiple 3D elements, and sounds to bring this masterpiece to life in a digital and blockchain world.
The purpose of the NFC-Tag is to give not only the owner a unique sensorial experience and transfer the asset but to also give anyone that experience when admiring this masterpiece in any museum, gallery, or private showing. The limited-edition series of 50 XR-NFTs, will each have one unique element chosen by Jerome and minted on the blockchain.
