Transient Artwork Continually Sells Itself On eBay
'A Tool To Deceive And Slaughter' is a piece of artwork that comments on ownership by powering its own continual exchange via eBay.
Artist Caleb Larsen has created “A Tool To Deceive And Slaughter”, a piece of artwork that comments on ownership by powering its own continual exchange via eBay. The black acrylic cube checks every ten minutes if it is currently in an auction; if not it creates a new one, ensuring that owners are only in possession of the device for indeterminate periods of time. By purchasing, buyers agree to a number of terms and conditions, including that the device remains connected online, disconnected only for reasonable transport.
