Highsnobiety about Rulton Fyder putting up a tweet for sale on the blockchain

Sarah Osei reports on Rulton Fyder's purchase of Azealia Banks audio tape NFT, which he recontextualized by tweeting "SexTapesAreArtworks" which in turn was put up for sale as an NFT on the blockchain.
  
Commentaries have already compared Fyders reconceptualization of the NFT to Andrea Fraser’s Untitled (2003), a videotape performance released in an edition of five that features a sexual encounter between Fraser and a collector. This silent and unedited sixty-minute document was proposed by Fraser as an assertion against the commoditization of art and is considered a landmark work today.
