Luxury auction house Sotheby’s is hosting its first-ever non-fungible token (NFT) sale featuring work created by Pak, an anonymous digital artist. 

According to an announcement published Tuesday, the collection will include NFTs in the form of digital “cubes.” The individual NFTs are: A Cube (1), Five Cubes (5), Ten Cubes (10), Twenty Cubes (20), Fifty Cubes (50), Hundred Cubes (100), Five Hundred Cubes (500), and Thousand Cubes (1,000). 

If a collector chooses to purchase one cube they will receive one NFT. If they purchase six cubes, they will receive two NFTs: “A Cube” and “Five Cubes.” 

According to the announcement, the collection aims to “scrutinize our understanding of value,” and poses potential buyers with the question: “What does value mean, and from where does it derive authority?”

Pak, whose identity remains a mystery, has been a prominent figure in the world of digital art for over twenty years. In addition to using technology to create artwork, they are also the founder and lead designer of the studio Undream. Pak also created Archillect, an AI meant to find and display visual media.
