Minted by Pak in 2020

Acquired by Maxstealth in 2020

A giant within the crypto world and creator of Archillect, digital artist Pak is behind The Merge, the highest-selling NFT collection of all time. In 2020, Pak started the on-going series Routine, composed of sleek cuboid forms that dissolve, vibrate, rotate and reform on a loop. A new Routine is only released when the last Routine has been collected, and each time the collector must outbid every previous bid on a work from the whole collection. With this premise, the series is a conceptual experiment that explores market manipulation and game theory. In Conversion Routine, a structure containing a smaller cube within a larger cube is divided into quarters that repeatedly turn in unison as the whole slowly rotates through space. MaxStealth acquired the work in October 2020, and two days later he bought Tide Routine, a cube formed of 125 tiny cubes that explode outwards and pulsate before falling back into an orderly shape.
