“A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter” or “The Forever Ebay”

Posted from The Citrus Report

19e09728c7rsen 1.jpg “A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter” or “The Forever Ebay” internet headlines forever ebay ethernet ebay cycle repeats current contract collectors citrus report caleblarsonm caleb larsen art

Caleb Larsen and his contract attorney are geniuses.  The work is constantly for sale and the collectors goal is to turn a profit which the artist gets a cut of.  Why didn’t we think of this?

The explanation is:

“Every ten minutes the 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.”

So in a country that can resonate with hip-hop we can only guess in terms of some very academic essay that compares the socio-economics of late 1970s NYC with the current climate in Romania (which would be a great read by the way, somebody get on that), we give you hip-hop Eastern Europe style.
