An art piece by Caleb Larsen, ‘A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter, 2009′ is a physical sculpture that is perptually attempting to auction itself on eBay. Every ten minutes this black box pings a server on the internet via the ethernet connection to check if it is for sale on the eBay. If its auction has ended or it has sold, it automatically creates a new auction of itself. If a person buys it on eBay, the current owner is required to send it to the new owner. The new owner must then plug it into ethernet, and the cycle repeats itself.
The ebay auction now stands at $4,250.00 with 4 days and 5 hours left to the end.
Collector understands and agrees to the underlying concept and function of the Artwork and that the sale of the Artwork by Artist is dependent and conditioned upon Purchaser’s agreement and adherence to the below terms. Such terms are fundamental and crucial to the on-going viability and artistic integrity of the Artwork.. Read more on eBay.
