These days’ people are doing some obscure things to join the NFT market. Ever since the rise of NFT, many creators and artists have entered the scene of selling their art as NFT.
Only recently, an artist who goes by the name of SHL0MS blew up a Lamborghini for creating NFT tokens. He blew up the Lamborghini Huracane and then collected 999 pieces of the car to be auctioned as non-fungible tokens.
In the past, artists have done some crazy things to gain attention and sell their art, but this is the first time someone is doing something like this to create NFT.
The artists bought the second-hand car from its owner. And then hire a team of explosive engineers and experts. The experts helped him strap the explosive in a way that would help blow up the car properly, creating the pieces.
On February 2nd, he took the car to the dessert area, which was kept undisclosed. Then, he blew up the car and recorded the entire event in 4k quality. Smaller high-quality clips are also recorded that captured 999 pieces of the car. These clips will be auditioned as NFT. The buyers will not get the car pieces, as they are dirty and oily. They will get to buy the digital asset of the small pieces of the car.
The pieces were put on auction on February 25th. The auction of the pieces will start from 0.01 ETH each, and the auction will go on for 24 hours. Among 999 pieces, 888 pieces were put on auction, and the rest was kept by the artist. The group of auctioned pieces is called $CAR.
SHL0MS is an artist who has worked in this field of creating NFTs before and has gained a lot from it in the past. In 2021, he blew up a urinal that looked like the one that Marcel Duchamp designed in 1917. The urinal created a 150 token group which was auctioned at $500,000.
He also accrued around 1 million dollars, out of which the majority of the money goes for funding the public art installations. On asked, he mentioned that with these types of projects, he wants to portray the short-term nature and greed of the crypto world.
He also stated in a press statement that the goal of this type of project is to make people appreciate the art. He wants people to understand the art and not simply look to make money.
The blowing up of the car garnered the artist the needed attention. Without any doubt, if people can buy urinal broken piece tokens. Then this time it is an Italian supercar.
