Outland Takes London

by Brian Droitcour

On October 11, Outland celebrated the premiere of Leo Villareal’s forthcoming NFT project Cosmic Bloom in London. In one bustling day—consisting of a preview breakfast, open exhibition hours, and a late-night party DJed by Kode9—friends of Outland gathered at Stone Nest, a nineteenth-century Welsh chapel in the heart of Soho. Three large-scale LED walls presented the preview of Cosmic Bloom, illuminating the space with a mesmerizing display of evolving geometric forms that reference the natural world. 

Photographs by Rowben Lantion from the breakfast and party are included below. A million thanks to all who came, to Villareal and his studio, to Kode9, and to all that helped make Outland’s first London event a success!
