Caleb Larsen’S Arty Cube Endlessly Ebays Itself

When I first read about this, I thought to myself that it’s just a plain, black acrylic cube, but then I read on and found out what this thing exactly does.

A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter is actually a piece of conceptual art by Caleb Larsen. Sounds pretty impressive, but it’s not much to look at until you understand what it exactly is. You see, the crazy thing about this cube is that once you get your hands on it and plug it in, it will automatically put itself back on sale on eBay. The box continually pings a server on the Internet looking to see if it can find itself for sale on the auction site. If it cant, it automatically creates an auction for itself.

If a person buys it on eBay, the current owner is required to send it to the new owner. In turn, the new owner must  plug it into an Ethernet cable, and the cycle repeats itself, until somebody breaks the chain.

You can check out the most recently completed auction for the cube here, and follow A Tool To Deceive and Slaughter and its various auctions on its own dedicated website.
