Vintage Music Photography

Artist: Bob Gruen 

It's not possible to make a new vintage print.
A vintage Artwork increases its value with the time.
 

The physical artworks of The Music Collection project were created in the 60's, 70's and 80,s. The authenticity of each work is confirmed by several features, including the artist's signature, number, title, watermark and a hologram of a portrait of the artist. 

The Collection bridges the gap between unique vintage physical artworks and NFTs. The project, as Bob Gruen explains it, is a work of art in which people participate and have an active role in the history of the images.

Buyers will receive a digital and a physical artwork (vintage or contemporary). The project challenges our understanding of the value of art and tests our role in the digital and physical art worlds.

BOB GRUEN's NFT collection will be launched by SUPER ORANGE, an international art services business, on Ethereum platform. The value of each NFTs is fixed at $10,000 and can be paid either with Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), USD Coin (USDC), and Dai (DAI) or with credit or debit cards.

At the outset, the successful applicants will have a choice of receive a physical artwork or either keep the NFT or to exchange it for the physical artwork.

Non-fungible token ERC-XXX

3mb Tif + file archive with documentation

Originally minted on May 3, 2014 on Namecoin blockchain, and preserved on a token minted on May 28, 2021 by the artist

 

Calls to https://ipfs.io/ipfs/QmRWhsnDKBwWDozDgDp8Te25KDViDcfz83zDs7ykR1x995 for supporting documentation

The hash and all the information about the artwork are stored on the Ethereum blockchain, and therefore cannot be modified. This token was minted May 2021, but the referenced pieces were originally made public in 2014, with a link to the image hosted on the Namecoin network. The token is a very early example of utilizing a blockchain token to identify the provenance of a piece of art. Documents contained within the media bundle hosted on IPFS indicate the date and block location that the Namecoin DNS pointer was set to point to mccoyspace.com, and shows the transactions used at the time to create this trail. To avoid domain squatting, Namecoin was designed to include removal of pointers after 36,000 blocks. Accordingly, this specific Namecoin entry was removed from the system after not being renewed, and was effectively burned from the chain. 

 

This NFT’s data storage security is high. This NFT’s associated media and additional legal and archival JSON encoded data are stored on IPFS.  

 

The NFT’s security follows standard ERC-721 practices. The function, use, and standards compliance are on par with current industry standards. 

 

There are 10% future royalties referenced in the legal disclaimer noted on the linked IPFS archival files, along with an Ethereum address to send the royalties to, however this is not directly enforced at the contract level.
