A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter, Caleb Larson
I’m currently loving this: A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter by Caleb Larson
It’s an artwork that keeps itself perpetually on eBay. The idea is that it keeps moving and each buyer has the chance to make or lose money through their ownership. The auction started at $2,500 but when I last checked it had got 12 bids and was up to $4,250
It reminded me of a cubic sculpture I found at Frieze which also made transit integral to the work – a glass cube the exact size of the inside of the trademarked space inside a FedEx container which gradually collected scratches, cracks and other marks as it was shipped from exhibition to exhibition.
