At 10am EST tomorrow, February 25, Christie’s will become the first major auction house to offer a purely digital artwork — Beeple’s “每天:前5000天,“一个独特的NFT(非娱乐令牌)由2007年至2021年和2021年之间的每天创造的5,000个个人图像组成,并在艺术家上发布Instagram.. Previously, Beeple’s works had only been offered in what are known as “drops,” timed online sales by blockchain-backed marketplaces likeNifty Gateway,在那里他们已经获取了350万美元single weekend. In another first, the house will also accept payment for the artwork in cryptocurrency, a coin known as Ether. (The buyer’s premium, a set of fees tacked on to the principal, must be paid in dollars.)

NFT不是新的;他们现在已经过了几年了。但是,克里斯蒂即将推出的销售将他们反映进入主流,数字创造者以巨大的方式收获了加密收藏品热潮的好处。一位前棒球运动员迈恩约翰逊变成了艺术家,出售一分钟内的NFT艺术品100万美元。一个独特的NFT为“Nyan Cat”GIF,由艺术家克里斯托雷斯创造了10年前,出售对于近50万美元的基础,一个赋予艺术家的平台10%的二级事务。

对于那些喜欢松节油的味道和一个良好的拉伸帆布的人来说,NFT的崛起是非常令人难以置信的。什么,究竟是一个nft艺术品?这是我们在纽约的战后和当代艺术的专家诺亚戴维斯的第一个问题,这是纽约州领导即将推出的销售。理解NFTS是“抽象中的练习”,戴维斯承认。“基于NFT的艺术品只是一个代码。它不存在。它没有对象。“

销售 - 戴维斯预测将更像是“MOSH PIT” - 在不到24小时的时间内居住。阅读下面的完整采访。

Hyperallergic:Beeple’s work is描述作为“一个完全数字化的艺术品,没有任何物理成分。”那是什么呢?如果你投了这件艺术品的中标价,你要买什么?

诺亚·戴维斯:定义艺术品本身和代表艺术品的符号非常重要。基于NFT的艺术品真正只是一个不可休闲的令牌 - 它是一系列长系列的字母和数字,被丢弃到数字钱包中。但代表令牌的符号是肌肉放在一起的巨大拼贴画,并且可以争辩说令牌基本上意味着它包含在其中。这是他正在进行的项目中的前5,000张图片每天, in which every day he makes a new image. More recently, they have been very politically or pop-culturally inclined. But the actual NFT-based artwork is just a code. It doesn’t exist. It has no objecthood. We are not selling a painting to hang on your wall. That being said, Mike [Winkelmann, aka Beeple] is very interested in collaborating with the ultimate owner of the work to display it. A lot of artists are very controlling about how their work is displayed, shared, disseminated, but Mike is much more of the mind that it’s up to the owner of the work how they want to live with it and how they want it to be shown.

H:让我们说我是艺术品的买家,我想看看它。忘记为其他人展示它 - 我只是想看我购买的5,000张图片。我怎么样做这件事?

ND:You could look at it on your phone, your computer, your tablet, or in virtual reality. Really, the only pre-requisite is a screen that has access to the image. It’s not something that you can think of and conjure in your mind’s eye just yet — you do need that portal. Maybe there will be a chip that can be implanted in your head one day, but we’re not quite there yet.

小时:也许在几个月内。好的,那么为什么有人买这个?像一个nft,一幅画也完全是独一无二的,但它也是一个物理对象。您是否可以争辩说,NFTS正在制定一个市场驱动的艺术世界,更为投机,因为它们是非切实的投资?

ND:There’s a lot of good questions there. The most provocative one right up front is why would you buy this, and there are very many correct answers. There are people who are going to look at this as a volatile marketplace that represents an opportunity for speculation and potentially a windfall down the line. Even though this is probably going to command an extraordinary price, there are people out there who are looking at this as a potential investment opportunity. Then there are people who are looking at this as a radical declaration of philosophy or values or investments in the concept of a future where blockchain technology and NFTs and cryptocurrency become the norm for transacting in the financial marketplace.

还有一些人非常热爱艺术、新奇和稀有,这满足了他们的欲望,满足了他们对新奇、不同和富有挑战性的事物的渴望——从文学、哲学的角度,也从一个非常艺术的历史导向的角度。我想起了那些对毛里齐奥·卡特兰的作品感兴趣的人香蕉,例如。这是同样的勇敢-甚至可能是愚蠢的洒-但总有一个观众的东西,挑战和破坏。最终的价格是多少?“估计未知”是有原因的。

小时:有很多关于BEEPLE的工作的开始竞标 - 100美元 - 以此方式,进入可能甚至没有自我识别的人的障碍也是因为收藏家也很低。在此同一时,这100美元开始飙升的时间迅速?如果我不得不猜到,我会在几秒钟内说,我们将在成千上万的时间里。

ND:这就是为什么这个练习如此有趣。我希望至少有一到两个小时,它仍然可以为广大的人,因为这将是有趣的-这将是一个党,真的,当招标开放(或一个莫斯坑)。但我确实认为,就收藏家受众而言,有不同的方法。NFT收集器用来收集超过一小时或几个小时或最多一天发生的水滴。我们的投标窗口要宽得多[2月25日至3月11日],以适应收集类别,习惯了有10至14天的投标。

我相信我们会从传统的加密和NFT收集类别获得大量的活动。我们可能会看到一个平稳的投标,无论是在最初的几个小时或几天,然后是一个平静,然后在最后24-28个小时的投标活动,最后又一个乱哄哄。那些老牌的收藏家对这类事情非常精通,而且已经做了上百万次,他们将在最后一刻与最具竞争力的第一批竞拍者进行竞拍。

小时:我想现在将齿轮转移到寄售数字艺术品。在这种情况下,发货人 - 通过克里斯蒂销售工作的人 - 是蜜蜂本人,对吗?

ND:发货人是蜜蜂和MakersPlace,这是另一个NFT网关,是NFT投递的主要市场,也是一个数字钱包。

小时:一些平台喜欢Zora.允许艺术家占据未来的百分比,并且区块链使得这更容易,因为这是一个完美的跟踪系统,用于出处和工作的运动。这可以通过蜜蜂的工作可以转售,如果它是转售的时候会发生什么,但蛀牙是否会被剪切?

ND:这是一个好问题,这是一座我们尚未跨越的桥。我想我们很快就要过了。但NFT的转售问题尚未明确。我们总有一天要解决这个问题。

小时:Because I think what’s interesting is that, being an NFT, this work does not necessarily need to be resold through the art market. I don’t need to go to a gallery and consign my work and have them be the middleman — this is something I can sell anywhere. In a way, the walls are coming down.

ND:Totally. The artwork can’t disappear. It cannot be stowed away in a Freeport; it can’t be hidden. It is there for anybody that wants to find it. So it does democratize things in a pretty radical way. And we’re only just beginning to see how this kind of technology can be woven into the art collecting interface. It’s very possible that we will see blockchain technology being utilized for other purposes that nobody anticipated in the art world.

小时:并符合这一点,我猜我们也会知道买方是谁,因为它将被录制在区块链上,对吧?

ND:Well, at the very least you’ll know which wallet the artwork — the NFT — is contained in. But that doesn’t necessarily ID the person who controls that wallet. A lot of people in this space use pseudonyms, aliases, that sort of thing. I suspect that the buyer is going to want to publicize their identity just because of the nature of the sale, but we’ll see.

小时:I’ve also heard authenticity will no longer be an issue with the blockchain. No one can copy this work, and no one can question who made it. That’s pretty significant, right?

ND:嗯,是的,但不是。有趣的是,它还允许任何人和每个人都可以复制它,从这个意义上说,你可以采取截图的艺术作品,说明在网站上现在,你基本上有一个更传统的方式理解艺术作为绘画或产品的艺术家的创作能量的艺术作品。但实际的NFT是完全无形的,任何人都无法获得。这是另一个抽象的练习。它完全消除了真实性的问题,因为这些代码一次只能存在于一个地方,但它也打乱了我们对离散艺术对象的思考方式。任何人都可以拥有它-它在他的Instagram上,那是他正在玩的杜坎普现成的东西。

小时:在某种程度上,就像卡塔琳的工作。我也可以买一个香蕉并将它带到墙上,但我没有为他制作的一个版本的证书,画廊出售的。

ND:Exactly. That’s the secret sauce, whatever you want to call it. That is the residue that enchants an artwork, this idea that you’re establishing its identity and scarcity, its rarity, and that is what’s so great about blockchain. You can do that in a way that is very obvious, even if it is a little bit beguiling and tricky because we’re so used to thinking about art in this very literal, real, lived way. But I think the shutdown and everything that has happened in the last year has really prepared people for a reality where we’re equating the virtual with lived experience. I think people at the beginning of quarantine becoming obsessed with “保护动物“例如,建造房屋,以一种真实的方式相互交流,就像去别人家里闲逛一样……你可以通过这个管道来实现,艺术也是一样。没那么大的飞跃。

小时:当我们看到更多数字艺术品时,您认为传统的,物理艺术甚至更加有价值吗?

ND:在他们复古的身体里,对吧?有可能,谁知道呢。我不相信现在NFT会超越绘画、雕塑和素描,成为人们喜欢体验和参与的投资类和事物,因为这在艺术史上从未发生过。我不认为我们会失去这种肉体,即使我们生活在一个或多或少完全虚拟的世界。按照我们现在的理解,仍然会有一个艺术的地方。
