  • Growth


    In Growth, Slimesunday demonstrates the process of censorship utilizing blockchain technology. Each time Slimesunday experiences censorship, the event will trigger the piece to partially de-censor itself. Gradually over months or years, the piece will transform as Slimesunday’s works are removed and banned by various platforms and institutions, counteracting the individual censorship events.


    Growth is displayed on a Blackdove screen and connected to the blockchain through an Atomic Form caster. The NFT owner will receive the frame and caster. Smart contract created by Manifold.

  • The following terms supplement the Conditions of Sale which govern the sale of this Lot.


    The artist has created a physical piece to accompany the NFT. The physical piece includes a Blackdove Screen which is fitted with an Atomic Form caster, which connects the Blackdove Screen to the blockchain and the Artwork being displayed in connection with the NFT, the “Physical Companion”. The Physical Companion will be on display at Phillips’ Park Avenue Gallery from August 13 to August 20.


    The Artist reserves the right to and will have the ability to replace the Artwork related to the NFT (hosted on Arweave) at different points in the future with a new image each time. This new image will then become the Artwork.  Although the Buyer will have the ability to view the previous Artworks, the Artwork linked with the NFT will be solely within the Artist’s discretion.


    The Artwork image selected by the artist at any time will display in the Buyer’s digital wallet and on the Physical Companion. Please note that the Buyer is under no obligation to transfer the Physical Companion along with the NFT in future sales of the NFT.


    The Physical Companion is not part of the Lot offered by Phillips and is not covered by Phillips’ Authorship Warranty. Neither Phillips nor the Artist make any representations or warranties about the nature, condition, description, uniqueness, functionality, compatibility, durability, or the availability of the Physical Companion, either now or in the future, or that it will function in the manner the artist intends.


    The Buyer may request in writing, for Phillips to release or deliver the Physical Companion to Buyer. Buyer’s written notice must be received by Phillips within 30 days from the end date of the Online Auction. Phillips will only release arrange or deliver the Physical Companion to the Buyer upon Phillips’ receipt of full payment of the Lot’s Purchase Price.


    The Buyer will be responsible for paying all shipping charges associated with a delivery of the Physical Companion by Phillips to Buyer. Phillips will not be responsible to Buyer at any time for any physical loss or damage to the Physical Companion.

The Hammer Price is the final, highest bid accepted for the NFT when the Phillips closes bidding during the online-only auction.
    The Buyer’s Premium is the commission Phillips charges the successful highest bidder and buyer of the NFT and is calculated on the Hammer Price of the NFT as follows: Twenty-six percent (26%) of the portion of the Hammer Price up to and including $600,000; and Twenty-one percent (21%) of the portion of the Hammer Price above $600,000 up to and including $6,000,000 and 14.5% of the portion of the Hammer Price above $6,000,000.
