    By Praxis - Sculpture - Fur Balls - A sculpture, the size of a human head, but round, covered with human hair taken from wigs. There are 18 of these which can be arranged, according to the site in any order you wish, so you can imagine those sculptures in your own space. When you are describing the work to your friends, feel free to rearrange everything. The feeling from this work is attractive in one way (you want to pet those balls), but it is also repulsive in the sense that they look a bit like a dead animal.

    The owner of this artwork will receive a title card with a description of the piece to be mounted on your wall, and used when explaining the work. You will also get a letter of authentication, and a pdf copy of the catalog!

    this moment, everything extraneous to the now will be banished from
    the mind, and the owner will have an unmediated encounter with his or
    her world, in real time.  This artwork is site-specific:  it is here.
    Both hereness and nowness will be contingent upon the viewer’s precise
    location, spatially and temporally, but they will nevertheless be
    objective:  this is a sensual experience of the actual world (which
    can be considered an installation).

    "You’re seated in scuba gear above a gigantic pool when you hear a woman’s voice say 'Don’t be scared'.  Suddenly, you’re dropped into a low frequency sound scape of wet chaos.  The drums are frantically rolling, guitars slippery, harps sparkling, and an angelic chorus is humming in a frenzied murmur.  But like a storm passing, the turmoil drifts away.  In the distance you hear the woman bubbling out lyrics of nurturing reassurance before you reemerge to a big towel that reads: 'I’m proud of you.'"

For what seems an eternity, they come to gently rest upon the flapping wings of a butterfly in mid- stroke. This instant becomes locked; the glistening flakes, the shadows etched on the walls, the butterfly’s brilliant wings still and cradling.

    By Praxis - Sculpture - 1000 Suns. On a giant wall, the length of the biblical Ark (about 30 meters), is a light sculpture. From a distance it looks like ten giant braids coming off of the back of someone's head. It is actually 900 thousand LED lights in bunches of about 100,000 lights each. When it is turned on, the light is so bright it will hurt your eyes if you don't put on special eyewear. With an imaginary set of glasses on, you can flip the switch and turn on the wall and feel the near-blinding light of the sculpture.

    By Douglas Anthony Cooper. Earthwork. An Improbable Memory.

    The owner of this piece will remember with full clarity an event that
    has never occurred. Perhaps this is a memory shared silently by the
    entire species. A memory that comes to individual consciousness at a
    moment of crisis or necessity. Perhaps you have stolen a memory from
    the person sitting next to you. A memory so profound and real to them
    that it cannot be contained within the prison of a single mind and
    must pierce actuality like a shard of history. The subject of this
    memory is a person unlike anyone you have ever encountered or will
    encounter again. You will long for them and mourn their absence and
    be forever changed by the improbable memory of their passage through
    your life.

    As the owner of this artwork you will receive a title card with a
    description of the piece. You may mount this on your wall. It will
    prove useful when explaining the work. You will also receive a letter
    of authentication and a pdf copy of the catalog. Please take note.
    This is important. You are not buying a visible piece of art. You are
    buying the title and a description of the invisible artwork. This has
    no bearing on the question of ownership of course. It is entirely
    yours.

The wall they are hanging on is nine hundred feet long, and it is painted bright white and there is nothing else on it.

    By Douglas Anthony Cooper – Earth Work – “Newton’s Ghost.” Only one of
    these invisible works exists: you are purchasing a unique piece.
    “Newton’s Ghost” is a vast hollow sphere of glass, rising like a
    bubble through the surface of the earth. It is 150 meters in diameter
    (almost a tenth of a mile) – the approximate dimensions of
    Étienne-Louis Boullée’s unbuilt “Cenotaph for Newton.” Only the very
    top has emerged and is visible: this is a circle of glass, one meter
    in diameter. Because the visible section represents only a fraction
    of the sphere’s surface, it appears flat, but it is in fact subtly
    curved, like the horizon. As the owner of this artwork, you will receive a title card with a
    description of the piece. You may mount this on your wall; it will
    prove useful when explaining the work. You will also receive a letter
    of authentication and a pdf copy of the catalog. Please take note
    (this is important):  you are not buying a visible piece of art. You
    are buying the title and a description of the invisible artwork. Of
    course, none of this has any bearing on the question of ownership. It
    is entirely yours.
