Jeff Koons Sends Sculptures to the Moon and Unveils an NFT Project ‘Moon Phases’

World-renowned artist Jeff Koons is launching an NFT collection titles ‘Moon Phases.’ The mission is to send a group of sculptures to the Moon on an ‘Intuitive Machines’ lunar lander.

The American artist’s ambitious project was designed in partnership with Patrick Colangelo from NFMoon and Chantelle Baier from 4Space. The collection will be presented on Pace Verso (NYSE:VRS), Pace Gallery’s hub for Web 3.0 innovations.

The collection, titled ‘Jeff Koons: Moon Phases’ represents Koon’s entrance into the metaverse and will explore the imagination and technological innovations of the human race, with inspiration from the Moon, symbolizing curiosity and determination.

“I wanted to create a historically meaningful NFT project rooted in humanistic and philosophical thought. Our achievements in space represent the limitless potential of humanity. Space explorations have given us a perspective of our ability to transcend worldly constraints. These ideas are central to my NFT project, which can be understood as a continuation and celebration of humanity’s aspirational accomplishments within and beyond our own planet,” Koons stated.

Each unique digital artwork will correspond to a physical sculpture which will later be sent to the Moon from the Kennedy Space Station in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The sculptures will be the first authorized artwork to be placed on the Moon – specifically on the north-south axis – where they will remain in perpetuity.

The sculptures will be released at the end of the year; the proceeds from the first sales will be donated to the ‘Doctors Without Borders’ organization.
