The first toilet in the Metaverse, auction live on Venly

Article

Inspired by Marcel Duchamp's famous 1917 work of art 'Fountain'. As the godfather of 'objet trouvé', Duchamp placed an everyday and culturally invisible object in a completely different context. This was what we did with this artwork: 'What if a toilet was a digital product?' We then elaborated on this, with a critical touch on the challenges of the digital age today; data, privacy, AI. We hope to provoke conversation with this artwork, just like Duchamp did in 1917.

Digital toilets is a joint project of Van Marcke & Zoomers launched for the Biennial Interior exhibition of Kortrijk (Belgium) & Wonder Creativity Festival. The auction is live on the Venly Market until end of day, Nov 15th (CET).

"There are millions of blockchain applications that companies can deploy today. Venly is guiding companies like ours through the crypto jungle. Their expertise and personal approach were definitely decisive for us." Jotte Mallisse, Lead Design at Zoomers
