每日英語跟讀 Ep.K151: About Auctions - Invisible sculpture sells for sky-high price

一個義大利藝術家所製的「隱形雕像」於五月初成功以標價15,000歐元(約新台幣505,581元)的金額售出。 

An invisible sculpture by an Italian artist has been sold for €15,000 (around NT$505,581) during an auction earlier in May. 

根據外媒報導, Salvatore Garau (沙瓦托.加勞) 製作了這項作品名為《我是》來表現實社會中的空洞。沙瓦托像義大利媒體解釋道他們所看到的「空間」,正是被自己作品的能量佔據。 

According to foreign media reports, Salvatore Garau created the artwork, titled “I am” to represent the “void” of the world. Garau explained to Italian media that the empty space is occupied by the energy of the artwork. 

購買此作品的新主人將會收到一個正式的文件表示他是隱形雕像的擁有者,沙瓦托同時也表示這項藝術品為我們這個時代的隱喻。 

The buyer of the artwork will receive a certificate of authentification as the proud owner of the invisible sculpture which Garau considers a metaphor of our times. 

同時,此藝術創作在他眼中也極為珍貴,原因在於它不僅獨一無二,完全無法被覆製,也對製作過程中完全沒有留下碳足跡,非常環保。 

In addition, the artwork is deemed extremely valuable as it is totally unique, cannot be replicated, and is environmentally friendly

沙瓦托也建議作品應該被收藏在一個特殊、毫無受阻的房間。 

The artist also suggests that the artwork be stored in a special room that is free from obstruction

他表示此創作為150 x 150公分寬和高,所以購買者需要考量提供約此大小的空間「放置」雕。 

According to Garau, the artwork is about 150 x 150 cm in length and width so that would be the space needed.

包賣價破11萬!炒熱商品最後竟比實品貴上百倍 Virtual Gucci bag sold for higher price than real

虛擬名牌一個虛擬Gucci包近日在遊戲平台Roblox以要價新台幣11萬多賣出,以將近2萬多元超越了真實的Gucci包。 

A virtual Gucci bag was recently sold for US$4,115 (around NT$113,954) on Roblox’s online gaming virtual world, making it almost US$800 (NT$22,154) more expensive than the real item. 

根據外媒報導,這個虛擬的「蜜蜂刺繡酒神包」為「GUCCI花園體驗活動」系列產品知一,於5月17日在限時一小時的情況下,以要價約新台幣166元開始販售。 

According to foreign media reports, the virtual “Dionysus Bag with Bee” was available for one hour on May 17 as part of Gucci’s virtual Garden Exhibition and the original price offered was around US$6 (NT$166).  

然而,之後因網友炒作的關係,不斷的買進再以高價售出商品,最後外媒報導一位買家竟以4,115美元(約新台幣11.3萬元)成功奪下虛擬包。 

Soon after, scalpers began using the limited time frame to buy and re-sell the item for higher prices, resulting in one user who later revealed he paid US$4,115 (around NT$113,954) for the virtual bag. 

這個熱銷商品甚至超越了實際包包的價錢;根據Gucci官網所述,真實的蜜蜂刺繡酒神包標價為3,400美元(約新台幣9.4萬元)。 

The hot commodity even surpassed the sale of the real bag, which sells for US$3,400 (around NT$94,168)

然而,Reddit創辦人 Alexis Ohanian 後來也在推特上提醒手頭較緊的買家,表示此虛擬商品與非同質化代幣有所不同,在遊戲平台以外的地方毫無價。 

However, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian later took to Twitter to inform potential buyers that unlike an NFT (Non-fungible token), the item has no monetary value outside of the gaming platform, and cautioned those who don’t excess money to spend on such an extravagant bag. 

Gucci的其他幾件虛擬商品在當日也與蜜蜂刺繡酒神包一同出售,其中包括太陽眼鏡和吉他盒,售出的價錢卻遠遠低於此虛包。 

Several other virtual items from Gucci were also on sale with the Dionysus Bag with Bee including sunglasses and a guitar case but none did as well as the bag. Source article: https://chinapost.nownews.com/20210601-2539126 ; https://chinapost.nownews.com/20210529-2526046
