The Swiss artist Urs Fischer is gearing up to release his first collection of NFTs. The artist will release the tokens as part of a series entitled CHAOS. Each NFT will consist of two unique objects, such as BIC lighters that have been 3D scanned. These digital sculptures are on a constantly colliding course in motion and orbit. Over 501 original works will be translated into NFTs, culminating in a single NFT featuring all one-thousand objects.
Pace Gallery released a statement regarding the sculptures. They stated: “The sculptures, operating as an archeology of the present, are intended to manifest in any format that is capable of displaying, playing or showing a 3D sculpture in motion. They will exist in any space, be it virtual, real, or a fusion of the two, now and forever, through current and future technology.
Successful buyers will come away with Fischer’s work as an NFT, which is composed of a reference rendering and the underlying data to construct the work in any future digital space.” The first NFT within the CHAOS series is set to be sold live in an auction on Fair Warning. The auction will take place on April 11th, 5 pm EDT. There will then be a series of drops over the following weeks on MakersPlace.
The Urs Fischer NFT release also marks the first time a major gallery has entered into the world of NFTs. Keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from the world of art coming soon.
