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.
A collection of augmented reality sculptures that evolve interactively through global exploration – each Mirror changes based on its owner's actions and through the activation of enigmatic coordinates around the world.
Collectors represent 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 Sites, 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
A series of Sites around the globe can be visited to evolve Mirrors.
Each Site visited by a Mirror will activate a new Reflection on the Mirror – a generative and moving pattern inspired by Demsky's vivid and surreal RGB optical art that is completely unique to the Site. Mirrors can be evolved up to 8 times each by their owners.
Explorers who record and share their evolved Mirrors could become a prominent part of the history of PHASE:MN and will be eligible to receive special rewards.

“The outer world and everyone in it is just a mirror of our inner world.”
Mirrors are minted on Polygon, an Ethereum compatible, energy–efficient side chain, and can be resold directly on marketplaces like OpenSea. The total supply of Mirrors is limited to 8,888 – with each Mirror generated based on 5 base forms and a series of randomized attributes in different rarities. In addition to their initial appearance, Mirrors are interactively evolved, increasing uniqueness and rarity through global exploration.
Token attributes reflecting each Mirror's generation, unique properties, and evolved characteristics are dynamically updated in its metadata. Mirror cover imagery and token metadata is generated on–chain. A dynamic, blockchain–linked certificate of authenticity and ownership is viewable as part of the AR experience for 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.
