The piece — a massive rope art installation rendered in 3D — is the result of a collaboration between Hajime Kinoko, the world’s preeminent “shibari” artist, and Zak Shibuya of Reality Production Management (RPM). “Shibari,” also known as “kinbaku,” is a style of rope art in Japan. It has never before been captured this way in digital form for augmented reality.
The drop date for Hajime Kinoko and Zak Shibuya’s work is scheduled to be May 22, 2021 at 09:30 PST. Interested parties can bid using cryptocurrencies including Ethereum and stablecoins such as USDC.
In regards to the NFT, Hajime Kinoko said “I’d like for people all over the world to be able to share in my creative vision. I am making this installation in AR so my fans who can’t come to Japan can view it wherever they like even during the global pandemic.”
