The artist released 100 color-gradient blocks from red to blue through Ethereum and conducted a year-long auction. Collectors can get their favorite color blocks in auction. The artist did not provided a meaning for each blocks in advance, but instead chose to wait a year and observe the value distribution of these color blocks.


On October 18th, 2020, at 10:00 p.m., Red and Blue was about to end its year-long bidding, when collector GeoffreyX in the final minutes purchased both the red and blue encrypted blocks of color representing Chinese and American ideologies with his statement that “I hope that technological advances and artistic transmutations can once again help human society reunite.”
