blockchain in the art world: the pros and cons

Blockchain in the art world: the pros and consThe technology could improve efficiency and transparency but it poses questions about the future of dealers and auction housesFor Sylvie Gleises, head of marketing at insurer Axa Art, the problem is all too familiar. A fire sweeps through the home of an art collector, reducing their treasured hoard to ashes. But they find that not only have the much-loved artworks gone up in flames, so have their documents of ownership, tucked away in a drawer in the same home. Proving the collector’s ownership rights now becomes considerably harder. But what if the history and proof of their purchases, the provenance of works in their collection and all related legal and insurance documents were held on a permanent, trusted database to which the collector and trusted advisers could gain access via a secure key? “If you have all the certificates and no questions about provenance and authenticity, then it’s easy for us to settle the claim,” says Gleises. This is one example of the potential benefits of the distributed ledger technology — otherwise known as blockchain — currently animating a wave of entrepreneurship in finance, healthcare, manufacturing and the art world. Used since 2009 to underpin the cryptocurrency bitcoin, blockchain allows a transaction to be permanently recorded on a database shared between computers, without relying on a third party to authenticate or process it. Immutability and security are written in to blockchain; when no single authority is in charge of the ledger, no one may remove entries or fiddle with them. It could bring efficiency and transparency to the buying and selling of art, currently a fragmented and opaque marketplace. But it also poses some searching questions about the future of the dealers and auction houses accustomed to carving off a profit: the market’s traditional middlemen. Christie’s, the venerable 252-year-old auction house, is one of the last institutions one might expect to embrace the potential of this disruptive technology. But last week it brought together technologists, art experts, entrepreneurs, financiers and lawyers at its London showrooms to discuss how blockchain could redefine processes and relationships in the art market. Anne Bracegirdle, a specialist in Christie’s photographs department, said blockchain had a “potentially revolutionary impact on our business” in its ability to host all data about an object or artwork, from catalogue details, sale prices and provenance, linked to invoices and certificates of authenticity. In her view, it reduces the room for human error, boosts trust and therefore could tip hesitant buyers and sellers over the line. “Property titles and full provenance are often missing, and that information can make or break a sale.” Digital artists are particularly captivated by the possibilities of blockchain. The market for art created to exist on a screen has suffered from the ease with which it can be replicated. But blockchain allows artists to create digital editions of their work — just as photographers create a limited number of prints — and ensure that ownership can be tracked and verified. Smart contracts — an innovation of the Ethereum blockchain on which nearly all art-related blockchain activity is taking place — also allow them to make more money out of their work, even perhaps selling portions of their work on blockchain, bringing fractional ownership to the art market. Digital art, however, is where incumbent companies appear especially vulnerable, since the role of the dealer or auction house in authenticating art, judging value based on previous prices, researching provenance and bringing together buyers and sellers could become redundant when all that information is held on a blockchain. J ohn Zettler, president of Rare Art Labs, a digital gallery for artists, says: “A simple coding script could ask where this artist has already sold and where this particular piece has sold in the past. There would be no concern about the authenticity of the piece — and no real need for a physical location where buyers and sellers gather.” One of the pioneers of blockchain-based digital art is Matt Hall, co-creator of “cryptopunks”, a series of 10,000 unique digital artworks in the shape of pixelated heads that he and his business partner released on Ethereum last year. They no longer control the art; it has taken on a life of its own, with rare cryptopunks changing hands for the equivalent of thousands of dollars.While he sees the experiment as an unexpected success, Hall says it raises “tricky questions” about people’s willingness to buy art that only exists online. Debate also rages about the technical question of where the digital art should reside. Since keeping work on the blockchain itself is expensive, it is typically used to host a proof of ownership and a link to the work itself on a separate third-party site. Purists say that offends the principle of independence that is the point of the technology; it also leaves owners vulnerable to the possibility the third-party company could go out of business, putting their art out of reach or even destroying it. Few deny that dealing with blockchain is currently tedious: users have to go through the process of acquiring a “digital wallet” and negotiate a barrage of technical jargon. For art entrepreneurs wishing to launch services on Ethereum, the price of engaging with the network to set up or make changes to data — known as the “gas price” — is also painfully volatile. “There are so many rough edges. You can’t plan for success by buying a bigger server. You don’t control the servers and you can’t call the helpdesk,” Hall says. Others worry that data held on blockchain will fall foul of the European general data protection regulation (GDPR) that came into force in May and has required monumentally complex and expensive preparations on the part of big corporations. Richard Entrup, Christie’s global chief information officer, says doubts over blockchain’s compliance with GDPR were an “aha moment” for him. “It immediately takes it off the table for a number of applications,” he says. Christie’s is nonetheless exploring the technology’s potential, with hints of an as-yet-undisclosed blockchain initiative coming soon. For some, the lack of a central authority overseeing the Ethereum blockchain is both its central appeal and its Achilles heel, since it leaves unanswered questions about what happens in the event of disputes. This is particularly acute where the blockchain is linked to artworks in the physical world. When that fire rips through the luxury apartment, who is in charge of telling the blockchain that the items in question are gone? “If a trusted party is required to do that, then how decentralised is the system really, and how different is it from doing it the old-fashioned way?” asks Hall. The need for expertise in navigating these dangerous shoals means, for the time being at least, that dealers and auction houses are likely to have a role to play. Gleises also believes they have other reasons to keep a tight grip on the market. “There are plenty of intermediaries who don’t have any interest in change. It’s a very small market, and very profitable for some. Who is going to be willing to let go of some of the margin for the market to grow?” By James Pickford FT

the waterway

Maida Vale is such an idyllic location and seemingly made for the summer with the tranquil Regent’s Canal and Little Venice providing a Mediterranean flair. First Restaurant Group have certainly cornered the market in this part of the world with the revamp of their canal-side all-weather terrace at The Waterway. This could be one of London’s best alfresco spots and feels like a hidden gem.  Cocktails are expertly mixed with The Mask consisting of Ketel One Citron shaken with Chambord, elderflower & pineapple juice coming in for high praise. Other cocktails of note include the Carnival with aperol & Antica Formula shaken with fresh orange juice, lime juice vanilla syrup and egg white. Simply fabulous.  But on to the food... Starters are adequately prepared with the smoked salmon & crab being the standout favourite. Fresh and stimulating is the byword for the sashimi avocado tuna tartare and alongside the branded plates presents a nice touch. Mains are not overly ambitious, nor does it need to be. You would almost expect just the usual faire of burgers and steak (which is available) but what you also get is an inspired menu perfect for summer with the seared fillet of tuna melting in the mouth while the lamb shank slid off the bone.  The wine selection is also bold with wines available by the glass and bottle. The Viognier Vin de Pays D’Oc is a terrace friendly wine tasting of apricots, peaches and exotic fruits but the Gavi di Gavi is the obvious standout. If you have room for dessert, the classic chocolate brownie is revived with a chocolate and caramel sauce while the pineapple tart and nougat ice cream works well together. Altogether, a pleasant experience.  Simple cooking presented well along with a spacious terrace has turned this local haunt into a destination restaurant. A must-visit for any time of the year and recommended for members. The Waterway54 Formosa StreetLondon, W9 2JUTel: 020 7266 3557Fax: 020 7266 3547Email: info@thewaterway.co.uk

cosa america rally shut down the times square

Car spotters celebrated the supercar convoy in NYCOn the 4th of May, a convoy of one hundred twenty-three furious super and hypercars shut down the Times Square in Manhattan, so that the evening rush hour nearly collapsed! Thousands upon thousands of Car spotters and Enthusiasts celebrated the field of participants of the Corsa America Rally on their way to San Diego like world-famous rock stars! The Corsa America Rally was founded in 2013 by financial expert Thomas Heinrichs and since this year Thomas has organized thrilling Rally Events on American highways and race tracks. It was a fortunate coincidence that one of my female networking friends living in NYC captured the special evening atmosphere with her smartphone! Therefore, a great thank for Atessa Zolghar.SPARKLING KICK-OFF PARTY & ENGINES SCREAMINGSome supercar drivers over-revving the engines of their thoroughbred sports and exotic cars in the flow of traffic so that the euphoric atmosphere on the Times Square in Manhattan was boiling over straightaway. You see, gone are the times when famous rock stars like Queen, the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Backstreet Boys and Madonna filled stadiums, nowadays in the digital era, a convoy of super and hypercars is quite enough to attract thousands of Car spotters welcoming them with the popping of flashbulbs, actions cams and smartphones!PHENOMENA CAR SPOTTING ON THE TIMES SQUAREIn the past, every little boy indicated race driver or aircraft pilot as his desired career. Top Marque Event when thousands upon thousands of young people have shut down half of Monaco town. These days career aspirations like YouTuber, Car spotter and Instagrammer are dominating the Top 5 of every teenager wish-list. Since then the phenomena Car spotting has developed into one of the most successful business models, various European supercar events like Monaco Top Marque, Cars & Coffee, Blenheim Palace, Gumball and so on, attracting masses of Car spotters chasing the best supercar content for fame and cash! It was foreseeable that the gold-rush atmosphere among the Car spotter would not always stay positive, as we have seen at the last Top Marques Event when thousands upon thousands young people have shut down half of Monaco town!???????Supercars, Rally, US, Corsa America Rally,  Driving Days, Cars

bespoke luxury glass by ef art stained glass & des

Stained glass is an element of decor or exterior of the building, which consists of many pieces of art glass and is designed to fill the openings or bulk forms, taking into account the transmission or reflection of light. In Studio EF ART Stained glass & Design we putting all those pieces of glass in an ultimate luxury story of the glass and art. Modern designers are happy to use stained glass designs and bright color compositions. Stained glass windows, doors, and wall panels decorate closets and hallways, kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and staircase designs today.Also, stained glass compositions adorn modern ceiling designs and add gorgeous colors to decorative room dividers and partition walls. Combining pieces of glass of different colors can dramatically change the space perception, harmonize home decorating and add elegance to any interior design style. The flow of light through the material is, of course, crucial to the breathtaking effect of colored glass. The beauty of glass is in truth the beauty of light. Light is a medium that, like music, finds its way directly to the soul. We all are familiar with the magical qualities of the medieval stained glass, but the modern and contemporary glass are equally successful in provoking wonder, capable of surprising but in a completely novel language, which is more in tune with our times.   Pencils and watercolors: Weeks, months go into the making of a new stained glass window. However, it all starts with a great idea, a pencil and watercolor drawings in the design atelier. The main purpose and philosophy are to inspire customers with a finished project that goes beyond the expectation, producing unique and individual design results.  Shiny shades and hues: Various types of glass are carefully examined and hand-picked to best translate the beauty of the design into a unique hand-crafted project. Elena Sigmund is an artist and designer from Russia currently based in Europe/Slovenia. She is the art director of the EF ART Stained Glass & Design which is specialized in the stained glass window and interior made to order. By looking at her work we get the impression that the picture form glass starts to be alive and colorful light vibrates we sailed into a divine fairy tale.  www.ef-art.net

the 15th anniversary edition of top marques monaco

The Principality of Monaco was saturated in sunshine and  supercars last weekend for the 15th anniversary edition of Top Marques, the world’s only live luxury automobile show. More than 40,000 people turned out in the unseasonably warm weather to visit the show where they discovered a magical collection of world premier supercars, rare classic cars and a number of revolutionary green vehicles. A dazzling display of luxury products including unique timepieces and  bespoke jewellery were also on show in Monaco’s Grimaldi Forum at the luxury event, held in partnership with the Mairie de Monaco, the Monaco Convention Bureau and the Mondial Paris Motor Show. However, the scintillating spectacle of colour and opulence did not stop at the doors of the venue. The USP of Top Marques is its live test drives, with more than 25 vehicles lined up in the Pits this year for potential buyers, journalists and VIP visitors to trial on parts of Monaco’s famous Formula 1 Track. Thanks to a long-lasting partnership with the Casino de Monte-Carlo and the Societe des Bains de Mer, Top Marques was also present in Casino Square where this year’s display included the incredible Apollo IE supercar which checked in to Monaco on its official road tour. Supercar fans from all corners of the globe descended on the Principality to catch a glimpse of the extraordinary supercar, valued at 2.3 million euro, as well as the scores of other luxury vehicles which could be seen circulating around Monaco over the four day show.Manoj Bairstow, managing director of Top Marques Monaco, said last night : “We would like to thank each and every one who participated in - and visited - our anniversary edition of Top Marques. The atmosphere inside and outside the Grimaldi Forum was extremely celebratory throughout the show, and we were delighted to see so many people who came to share in this special occasion. The streets of Monaco were also absolutely packed with supercar fans and the ambiance was incredibly festive – just like a Grand Prix weekend !  “Our enormous thanks go to the Grimaldi Forum for helping us put on such a wonderful display – this year and every year since our conception in 2004. I would also like to offer our appreciation to the police authorities for their support of Top Marques as well as the Government of Monaco and of course, our High Patron H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco.
