State of SEEN — Volume #8
Welcome to State of SEEN the weekly newsletter about all things happening in the SEEN ecosystem.
SEEN HAUS keeps innovating, main development resources remain allocated to both the Secondary Market and the artist Launchpad.
As for the Secondary Market, SEEN HAUS will not only allow for royalties on its in-house marketplace but also allow for royalties to be accrued via third party platforms such as OpenSea.
This week we were proud to host Stacey Lee Webber with her latest artworks of the Insurrection Bills Series at SEEN HAUS.
Stacey’s artworks together with her first ever NFTs are thrilling pieces in response to the current political climate and were purchased for 0.991 ETH and 0.44 ETH after an extended bidding battle.
This week we are excited to finally launch the long awaited Space NFT auction on SEEN HAUS!
The artist, Jean-Baptiste Launay, better known as Jisbar, is a French pop-street artist born in 1989. He lives and works between Paris and Amsterdam. Jisbar is famous worldwide for being the first ever artist to reinterpret classical art masterpiece figures such as Mona Lisa, Frida Kahlo and others from Klimt and Warhol with his personal style of pop and street art.
In collaboration with SEEN HAUS, he will be sending the very first NFT-backed painting into space!
Space NFT is a portrait of renowned digital artist Beeple, depicted with the reflection of the galaxy on the lenses of his eyeglasses. The overlapping space motifs, imagery of rocket ships, and references towards “going to the moon” are particularly fitting, as those ideals resonate with the cryptocurrency community at large. Appropriate callbacks towards crypto culture such as the Alien Cryptopunk, the $DOGE shiba inu, and Bitcoin hero Elon Musk are welcome nods of respect towards the loyal crypto community. With blue skies in the background, Space NFT expresses a hopeful and optimistic reaction towards the future of technology and cryptocurrencies in particular.
“The sky above will show the black vacuum of space, and the planet’s curvature will be seen below, accompanied by the thin blue glow of our atmosphere on the horizon,” Jisbar said. “There couldn’t be a more spectacular gallery in which to display a work of art.”
Upon return, the 40cm x 50cm painting will be subdivided into forty individual segments, each with a dedicated QR code that is linked to an NFT on the blockchain. The pieces will be sold in an auction setting on SEEN HAUS. Each piece will be serial-numbered and will be customizable with a hand-written 14 character message from Jisbar. After several months in the works, the space launch is predestined to be a milestone in NFT history.
Due to take place over the course of 3 days, the auction starts on Tuesday, May 18th with 13 tiles being up for auction per day.
