Today the phrase “NFTs go to the stars” takes on a new meaning as an Irish concept artist (and one of the top 100 Cointelegraphs in Blockchain 2020) Kevin Abosch announced the planned launch of a satellite in orbit called 1111 KOSMOS.

Announced shortly after the conclusion of the related fall for NFT, the Abosch 1111 series. A batch of 1111 NFT-supported images on the artist’s website indicate that the pieces will become a gateway to a larger project, and that “over time, this will show how societies at all can Parts of the world interact with work.

In an interview with Cointelegraph, Abosch 1111 described KOSMOS as one of the many “activations” of the original 1111 series and “kind of a pilot star for collectors in general.”

He continued:

Many of the images in the 1111 NFT are satellite. Many surprises await whoever decides to travel. ”
Abush said in a press release that the 1111 Cosmos will be a CubeSat satellite equipped with “an advanced camera and proprietary software that will produce high-quality data related to global climate change.” The images and data collected by the satellite will be made available to scientists and government agencies working in the field of climate change, and will be used to create another series of NFTs that will be distributed to 1111 owners.

Ibusch, known for his play that can mix his often conceptual and philosophically complex works, once hinted at a satellite launch last week on Twitter and described it as “space.” There is also a high possibility that the satellite will be used for more than just mapping climate change: In a recent exhibition at the National Museum of China, he used the paintings to hit state-owned Uyghur concentration camps in China:

While Abush says he is “hesitant,” he is the first to use satellite imagery for artistic purposes, using a satellite to conduct research on climate change, to create and deploy NFTs, and to interact more closely with the detailed, unspoken DAO component woven into the 1111 series is definitely a new combination.

Abush told Cointelegraph that an entire team is needed to realize such technological and technical advances, including Coder-Dojo founder James Wilton and Bridge founder Connor Murphy.

“I majored in computer science, but James is a versatile software engineer and Connor’s strength is computer science. The goal of this type is to build a flexible and reliable architecture with minimal power consumption. After all, there’s only one computer hovering in the sky, but we have it.” Action needs to be done to overcome limitations. ”

Finally, these efforts are part of a broader theme in Abosch’s efforts to create interactive and experimental networking installations, suggesting that 1111 may be his most active business on this front.

“1111 challenges the suggestion that we collect art, suggesting that art may bring us together. By increasing self-esteem and demonstrating emotional commitment to the collector, it becomes increasingly difficult to intellectually assert that a person is superior to art. I have no problem with fins, but I assume it will be a feeling.” Regret for some when I am not fully involved in an ongoing relationship with work. “
