Sotheby’s auction will feature 66 works of digital art
The event will be held from March 17 to 24, where a total of 66 NFT pieces will be auctioned. This is the first such auction to be held by Sotheby’s in Paris while running simultaneously in the Metaverse. The virtual world of the auction house was created in RLTY World, a project that serves as a private Metaverse platform for Web3 communities and brands to develop their own digital universes.
After “Strangely Satisfying” auction is over, Sotheby’s will introduce the next auction called “Natively Digital: Glitch-ism.” This will feature various NFT artwork inspired by the glitch art movement. Sotheby’s describes the work as “intentionally creating errors and problems in digital media such as images, videos and sound art that highlight the complex and often problematic relationship between humanity and technology.”
The glitch art sale will be held March 24-31 in New York and will include “Loading new conflict… Redux 6,” part of Ethereum NFT created in 2018.
