[ANALYSIS] Luxury brands find future with 'metaverse,' blockchain
Posted : 2021-05-05 09:15
By Kim Jae-heun
High-end fashion companies reluctant to sell their products online, encourage customers to visit their boutiques and "experience" the brand in person so they can observe the craftsmanship of their handbags and apparel. Luxury brands hate the idea of people just browsing over pictures of their items uploaded online and purchasing them with the simple click of a mouse.
However, the accelerating global trend of digitization has changed the luxury goods industry, especially after the outbreak of COVID-19. And companies are learning that information technology can maximize their brand value.

April 30, 2021
In some eyes, many NFT transactions can be classified as absurdist propositions. Trading cryptocurrency for a catalog of weird digital assets—from tweets,YouTube videos, odious sound clips, virtual sofas, renderings of luxury bags, or even news articles—can read like a prank.
So it makes perfect sense that David Datuna, the Georgia-born artist who gained wide notoriety for brazenly eating Maurizo Catellan’s $120,000 absurdist banana art at the 2019 Art Basel Miami fair, would enter the scene. Earlier this week, he revealed his first foray into NFTs with a series of five mixed media collages being auctioned on Rarible starting on May 6. (The cryptoart online marketplace also has a listing for a gif of Datuna’s infamous Art Basel banana moment—an “art performance” titled “Hungry Artist.”)

Free Comb with Pagoda has been pulled from OpenSea after his estate clarified that it will still retain the drawing’s license and rights.
The Basquiat archive’s licensing agent David Stark confirmed to
The Art Newspaper that the Basquiat estate still owns the copyright of the 1986 mixed media work. “No license or rights were conveyed to the seller and the NFT has subsequently been removed from sale,” he said in a statement.
The auction of the NFT was sponsored by DAYstrom which initially shared that the sale will include “all related IP and copyright in perpetuity” and that the highest bidder can “deconstruct” the physical drawing if they choose to — allowing them to have “the NFT as the only remaining form of Basquiat’s work to exist.”

SEGA will start selling NFTs

NFTs have become the latest controversial blockchain technology, allowing people to (in theory) sell digital art in a similar way to that of a physical piece of media – offering an authenticated sense of ownership over a particular piece. The practice has been steep in controversy due to a number of reasons. Despite this, SEGA has announced its intentions to begin selling NFTs later this year.
In a Japanese press release, as translated by DeepL, SEGA has announced that it will “collaborate with double Inc. to Develop NFT Digital Content Using Blockchain Technology Globally.”
These NFTs are linked directly to popular SEGA IP, with the publisher announcing its intention to “sequentially sell a wealth of digital assets, such as visual art from the time of launch and video and background music used in games, as NFT content for a number of classic IPs that were developed for hardware released by SEGA in the past and are still highly popular around the world.”

What's in the 2021 Oscar swag bag? — Quartz

April 25, 2021
The Academy Awards changed several long-standing rules this year, but one tradition has firmly remained intact: the swag bag.
For nearly 20 years, the 25 nominees for best actor, actress, and director receive a commercial cornucopia of products and vouchers for exotic trips and services from brands hoping for some celebrity media exposure. This year, the “Everybody Wins” package, true to pandemic custom, will be delivered to nominees via Postmates.

Commercial cornucopia: “Everyone Wins” nominee gift bag
Distinctive Assets, the Los Angeles-based product placement company that assembles the Oscar gift bags, says that they chose merchandise to evoke themes from the fraught pandemic year. “We did want the bags to feel like they had a bigger purpose than just, ‘here’s a bag full of free stuff,’” explained Lash Fary, the marketing firm’s founder, to Fortune. “All of the bags that we’ve been doing have been from female-owned businesses, Black-owned businesses, disabled entrepreneurs, and companies who give back—even ones that you wouldn’t necessarily think give back.”

This New App Lets You Turn Anything and Everything Into an NFT

Despite the fact that a majority of Americans still don’t know what an NFT is, the non-fungibles have really taken over the country—burrowing their way into our wallets and also, apparently, our hearts.
America’s confusion likely stems from the fact that NFTs can be pretty much anything. Since the designation refers to a technical process by which a digital file is minted on the blockchain and transformed into a crypto asset, lots of stuff can qualify—so long as it goes through that process. So while the list of non-fungibles has included highfalutin content like postmodern murals and digital art videos, it has also included images of toilet paper, Gucci Mane’s sneakers, and something called a Pringles CryptoCrisp.

If you’re exploring surreal photography posts on Instagram, you’ll surely run into one of Gab Bois‘ cleverly staged images that satirize various aspects of modern life. Having amassed over 500,000 followers on the social platform, the Montreal-based artist and photographer is best known for her bizarre photographs that twist reality like a model wearing boots with computer keys as outsoles or using Apple AirPods as a bikini top. Gab Bois’ humorous yet subversive concepts are truly for the Internet age and now the artist is taking her work to the crypto world.
Gab Bois is launching her first NFT collection on Nifty Gateway. The series consists of two open editions, three limited editions and one single edition that is an animated work. From the artist getting a tattoo of the Ethereum logo to a jar filled with mints, the project features pieces that poke fun at the crypto realm as a whole.

Comic book Alex Ross, a longtime collaborator of Marvel and DC Comics, has announced plans to unveil his first painting series as a non-fungible token.
Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, have become a wildly popular digital trend, one that allows for the sale of digital content that doesn't have a tangible form. NFT technology allows collectors to purchase and store digital works, tracked with blockchain technology, while ensuring artists retain recurring royalties.
Ross' series, backed by technology company Otoy, is titled
Shooting Up The Mainstream and serves as a permanent digital archive of the artist's lifetime of work.
