๐ŸŒŽ Mad Dog Jones Takes Us Out of This World

INVNT GROUP™, in collaboration with Artemis Music Entertainment, Nifty Gateway, and artist Mad Dog Jones, launched a new NFT collection yesterday, "Fallen Gravity." 

The collection, which rolls out in two distinct phases, melds a cyberpunk aesthetic with the awe and mystery of space that Mad Dog Jones says "is about drifting into the unknown." 

That vision of drifting into the unknown has manifested into an immersive exploration of scientific mastery and human passion, a passion that is readily heard in Mad Dog's voice in our exclusive interview with the collaborators.

So What's So Special About Fallen Gravity? 

"Fallen Gravity" not only provides collectors with the opportunity to add artwork from Mad Dog Jones at accessible price points, but perhaps the most special part of the drop comes with Phase 2's "Unknowable Dimensions."

"Unknowable Dimesnions" features 500 1/1s that come with embedded Star Songs—celestial compositions created from data sonification algorithms that transform astronomical images into music. 

These unique auditory components are derived from 500 telemetry coordinates over the lifespan of the International Space Station (ISS) and celebrate its journey from inception to its planned decommission.

In addition to the Star Songs and NFTs, collector's are provided one final benefit in "Unknowable Dimensions" - they each get to send a 50-character personalized message into space. 

Do you know what message you'd send into orbit? 

"With this once-in-a-lifetime multimedia experience, we weave a story of discovery through art, music, and technology, while offering web3 and Blockchain enthusiasts, NFT communities, and global collectors a unique opportunity to mint a piece of history and send a message to space." - Scott Cullather, CEO INVNT GROUP™
