Easton, MD, October 11, 2021 –(PR.com)– The Life Cube Project was inspired by the artist’s first trip to Burning Man in 2001. Since returning to the famed Nevada desert festival as an artist in 2011, Scott Cohen’s Life Cube Project has had thirteen major public installations and museum exhibits across America. In response to the pandemic, the Life Cube transitioned to become part of the Virtual Burning Man in 2020. The artist created a digital Life Cube, which included over 1.7 million photos that were hashtagged #burningman, and gave it to Burning Man. The resulting non-fungible token was created to commemorate the singular nature of that experience, and auctioned together with lots from other Burning Man artists by Sotheby’s in October, 2021, in an offering entitled “Boundless Space… the Possibilities of Burning Man. The composite NFT “Burning Man Life Cube” had fiercely competing bids in its final day, and just sold for over $10,000. This project has far exceeded all our wildest expectations,” stated Cohen, the creator of the Life Cube Project. “During this difficult year of community engagement, we were overwhelmed by the response to our virtual Life Cube project, both at Burning Man as well as in our growing school outreach program. It seems to resonate among people seeking creativity and connectivity.” Scott gave the first Life Cube token, a non-fungible token, to Black Rock City to show his gratitude for Burning Man’s inspiration to bring art to the Playa. The Life Cube Project was founded on the belief of the artist that if you write down your goals, dreams and aspirations, the chances of them coming true are much greater. To date, more than 50,000 students have heard the artist’s message, written down their goals and dreams and created art for the Cube. Cohen’s project has connected art and community in a dozen installations over the past decade, and has presented engaging public art in Las Vegas, El Paso, Reno, Mason Valley, New York City and Miami Beach, among others, involving over 100,000 participants and hundreds of visual and performance artists.

Installations have ranged from twelve to twenty-four feet high, covered with murals and mosaics of smaller art pieces. The NFT, which was made up of more than 1.7 million images from #BurningMan posts, is also 12 to 24 feet high. It can be covered with murals and mosaics of smaller art pieces.
