FREEPORT is inspired by and modeled after the Luxembourg Freeport.
Freeports are unregulated storage facilities that hoard art and valuables for the uber-rich. These ultra-secure warehouses exist outside of the territorial tax jurisdictions of any country. Freeports lack transparency which can promote fraud, money laundering, and tax evasion.
There are many similarities that can be made between freeports and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Both exist in unregulated territories, are constructs of capitalism, and can elicit unsavory practices. With a touch of irony, EPOCH seeks to circumvent these similarities by offering a unique concept for an NFT built upon an ecological, equitable, and sustainable model.
Artists participating in this NFT are Neil Beloufa The Freeport Song; Sarah Rosalena Brady Viral Letter; Alice Bucknell Swamp City Promo & Swamp City; Juan Covelli Terra Incognita; Juan Covelli América Calvaje HD; Alexandra Koumantaki The World is Nothing without Chaos; 6 pieces by Amanda Ross-Ho Untitled Imposter, En Verso; and Hirad Sab SOFT: Optics.
