Lorna Mills – Minting Advent & Burning Christmas
1. 12. – 25. 12. 2020
«Minting Advent & Burning Christmas» is both the title for a tokenized art collection of 25 GIFs by Lorna Mills presented in the form of a minted Advent Calendar as well as a solo exhibition unfolding on the blockchain.
From 1 December, advent doors are minted on the Ethereum blockchain to reveal – day-by-day – a new GIF created by Lorna Mills. Consecutive doors are opened every day leading up to Christmas Eve. Every day a new art work is minted as a NFT token in an edition of 240. Some of the art works will be given away as gifts, most will be offered for sale. And some – those which won't find an owner – will be burned after Christmas Eve.
Public sale on app.rarible.com/ma2020bc ends on 24 December, 24:00. The initial offering price for each door is 0.01 ETH (approx. 5-7 USD).
The final edition size for each door will be locked-in by burning all owner-less tokens. The ashes of all burned tokens will resurrect in form of a special edition token minted on 25 December 2020.
