Vi Trinh Lampoons “An NFT Called Tyrian Purple”

Pushing back hard against the NFT economy, Washington DC-based Vi Trinh releases An NFT Called Tyrian Purple. The short browser-based game prompts players to navigate a list of hypothetical NFTs with unflattering designations like snake oil, scientology, and tulip mania; each item links to a brief text explaining the reference. “This machine is being sold as a way to get away from previous systems of wealth when it is a recreation of existing power structures,” writes Trinh.
