Italian artist Salvatore Garau managed to sell an invisible sculpture for a whopping $18,300 USD recently and it doesn’t include an accompanying NFT. This piece was titled Lo Sono (translates to “I am”), and it supposedly shows this vacuum is nothing more than a space full of energy condensed and transformed into particles. Auction house Art-Rite expected it to sell for between $7200-$11000, but this piece shattered expectations.
What did the buyer get for $18,300? Well, a paper certificate of authenticity and a set of instructions on how to set up the artwork: it must be exhibited in a private house in a roughly five-by-five-foot space free of obstruction. This isn’t a one time thing as the artist is still creating more invisible sculptures, with the latest being one in New York.

When I decide to ‘exhibit’ an immaterial sculpture in a given space, that space will concentrate a certain amount and density of thoughts at a precise point, creating a sculpture that, from my title, will only take the most varied forms,” said the artist.
