Reflekt_ions aim to enhance the appreciation of art to help people explore emotions, develop self-awareness, cope with stress, boost self-esteem, and work on social skills.
Reflekt_ions’s 1st Drop will be released on October’s 17th in the MarkersPlace, the premier rare digital art market. This exclusive marketplace considered the potential impact and wonderful artwork of the project worthy of listing in this selective environment.
The 1st Drop is composed by 5 unique Reflekt_ions NFT cards and then several additional unique NFTs cards will come out to set up your own exclusive Reflekt_ions NFT Deck.
We expect to launch more products over time to continue to improve Reflekt_ions experience.
Created by Maria Reis Rocha, the project believes that artistic interpretation acts beyond and sometimes in spite of our more direct intentions, thoughts, and perceptions. Therefore, the moment of interpretation invites us to respond with more awareness, spontaneity, and imagination.
In collaboration with Pedro Monteiro, co-founder and psychologist, the artist created NFT art for active interpretation by holders and developed step-by-step art appreciation exercices to allow holders to experience their NFTs to the fullest.
The project aims to be a promoter of exclusive art interpretation for NFT holders,
who are entitled to the digital and printed version of the NFT.

Why is Maria Rocha launching her 1st NFT collection?
Because the web 3.0 ecosystem and its decentralization feature is based on upright ideals that allow artists to be rewarded more justly for their creativity and craft, because it is a form of innovation and to pave on a better future, and mostly because it guarantees a direct way to continue supporting social causes and making an impact on those who need it most.
