Biple’s new work is a life-size 3D sculpture and NFT, minted on October 28, 2021. Christie’s describes her as “Kinetic video sculpture – four video screens (16k resolution), polished aluminum metal, mahogany frame, two media servers; endless video with corresponding dynamic non-fungible token ”.
The author himself, talking about creation, calls it “the first portrait of a person born in the metaverse.” What is interesting about this work of Biple is that he is going to change “Human One” in the future.
This means that the new owner Ryan Surrer, as well as any future owners of the creation, will be able to see how the image of “Human One” will change depending on what Winkelmann himself wants to correct in the work. Changes may depend on the mood of the author and reflect his thoughts.
The original life-size 3D NFT sculpture depicts a man in a silvery space suit with boots, helmet and backpack. The deal was completed yesterday, and the cost of the work was $ 28,985,000.
