Beeple's Human One sold for $28.9 million

A huge moment for the NFT scene

Digital artist Beeple has sold a new three-dimensional video sculpture called Human One for $29 million.

Human One is a “kinetic video sculpture” inside a glass box that displays an astronaut walking while the background changes around it. On Wednesday at Christie’s auction house, it was bought for $28.9 million by Swiss venture capitalist Ryan Zurrer.

On Twitter, Zurrer thanked Beeple for his “visionary innovation, amazing new energy, and hilarious positive vibes that you’ve brought to both crypto and art.”

Winkelmann plans to update the visuals regularly throughout the rest of his life. “I want to make something that people can continue to come back to and find new meaning in. And the meaning will continue to evolve. That to me is super-exciting. It feels like I now have this whole other canvas,” he said.
