A collaboration between modern artist Demsky and Anima, PHASE MN:01 Mirror is a digital sculpture and gateway to the metaverse. An extension of Demsky’s otherworldly physical works – Mirrors are augmented reality NFTs that can be evolved interactively through global exploration.
Beginning as 8,888 augmented reality objects, each Mirror evolves based on its owner’s actions and through the activation of enigmatic coordinates around the world.
Owners will join a community of explorers, blurring the lines between physical and digital worlds to unlock the full potential of their Mirrors.
Once the community has activated enough coordinates, PHASE MN:02 will be unlocked, a collective digital creation, followed by PHASE MN:03, a final set of artifacts for the explorers.
Exploring the globe evolves mirrors
Following the sale, a series of GPS coordinates around the globe will be revealed for explorers to visit to activate their Mirrors.
Each location visited by a Mirror activates it, changing its appearance and generation up to 8 times. Explorers who record and share their activations will become a prominent part of the history of PHASE:MN and will receive special rewards.

“The outer world and everyone in it is just a mirror of our inner world.”
8,888 unique MN:01 Mirrors will be released, at a price of $200 per edition. A portion of these editions were made available for pre-sale reservations.
Reservations are now closed – whitelisted buyers will be notified by email on Tuesday, Jan 18 and will have 24 hours to purchase their reserved editions before the open sale begins.
Open sale begins Wednesday, Jan 19 at 12:00pm EST (5:00pm UTC).
Purchases can be completed using a credit card or crypto including Ethereum, Bitcoin, DAI and USDC.
Mirrors will be minted on Polygon without gas fees, with all of their generative attributes recorded on chain and viewable on OpenSea.
Minting will begin on Thursday, Jan 27.
The first location coordinates will be released in February to kick off global exploration and the evolution of the Mirrors.
Each Mirror can be evolved up to 8 times, dynamically changing their attributes and visual appearance.
Post-sale, Mirrors can be viewed and resold on secondary marketplaces like OpenSea, which will display any of their evolved attributes.
Secondary sales include a 10% artist royalty.
Each of the 8,888 Mirrors is unique, with 5 base forms in different rarities. Their surfaces change dramatically when evolved, with each generation adding surreal, animated textures and an increasingly weathered patina.
PHASE MN:01 will be released on Polygon, an Ethereum compatible, energy-efficient side chain, and can be resold directly on marketplaces like OpenSea.
Token attributes reflecting each Mirror's generation, unique properties, and evolved characteristics are dynamically updated in its metadata. A dynamic, blockchain-linked certificate of authenticity and ownership is viewable as part of the experience in AR on all Anima releases.
DEMSKY J. (1979)
Rooted in the graffiti boom of the 90s, Demsky is a self-taught modern artist internationally known for his work on the streets of more than fifty countries, on gallery walls, underwater, and now in the metaverse.
His work balances the future and nostalgia, radical creativity and exact sciences, with influences across street art, Japanese mecha, and 80s arcade games. He explores the interconnected relationship of space and time, highlighting the glitches and animating the static.
Demsky creates a true anachronism: a retro-futuristic vision immersed in impossible shapes, multiple dimensions, and organized chaos.
