A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter

Alex, a close friend of artdc.org just sent this ebay link via email.  This is it.  I feel like Dean Moriarty writing this.  You have to check out this item.  It’s a sculpture that sells it self.   This is Robert Morris taken to a new level.  It’s not the sound of it’s own making.  It develops it’s own sale.  It has 12 bids and is up to over $4,000.00 plus $50.00 shipping.  You own it until it sells it self again.

Evidently it pings a server every 10 minutes to make sure that it’s still for sale.

This goes beyond artificial intelligence, it’s something different.  I’d love to see the auction history for this item with past and future sales.

Here’s a link to the artist’s site.

UPDATE: It sold for US $6,350.00 and $50.00 for shipping on January 28, 2010.
