A 10-foot-long yellow neon sculpture comprised of 42 inline alphanumerics representing the blockchain contract address for the unique crypto-token “YELLOW LAMBO” (symbol: YLAMBO) also created by the artist. The Lamborghini sports car become the aspirational symbol of choice for a large group of enthusiastic crypto-currency traders who use “#lambo” in social-media posts perhaps as an affirmation of their quest to reap huge profits from their crypto-investments, or more likely as a declaration of acknowledgement to their tribe of the crypto-zeitgeist. “I use proxies as emotional distillates” explains Abosch. “If the Lamborghini is a symbol of success, then the car itself is a proxy. The crypto-token YLAMBO is a proxy of a proxy. Finally, YELLOW LAMBO in all its neon splendor is yet another proxy… triple-distilled if you like."
