About the event
In honor of opening weekend for "Tom Sachs Furniture" at the Stony Island Arts Bank, presented in partnership with Anthony Gallery, Kenwood Gardens serve as the launchpad for Tom Sachs Rocket Factory's Chicago Rocket Launch.
Launch #16 will be located in Kenwood Gardens - 6929 S Kenwood Ave - on Friday, July 8th between 4:00pm - 5:00pm CT. About the Tom Sachs Rocket Factory Tom Sachs’ Rocket Factory is the definitive transdimensional NFT collection, linking physical ‘meatspace’ with the digital cryptosphere. Released in the summer of 2021, the Rocket Factory invites the community to assemble three separate Component NFTs into a single Rocket NFT - using the blockchain. The Rocket Factory developed this new Web 3.0 functionality, dubbed ‘comburning’, as a first-of-its-kind method for building new NFTs, using existing NFTs. The process introduces endless possibilities to this emerging technology, and is a continuation of Sachs’ three decades as a world-renowned sculptor. In Tom Sachs' studio, they say 1 plus 1 equals 1 million. Every Rocket NFT is built as a physical sculpture at Sachs’ studio in Lower Manhattan. Each Rocket is painstakingly hand-painted to match its digital NFT twin, launched, recovered and shipped to its owner. The Rocket Factory has launched Physical Rockets in 15 different locations around the world, and will be doing a Physical Rocket Launch in Chicago at Oil Kenwood Gardens on July 8, 2022.
