Timelessness, the fourth film in the Auerbach series, is a meditation on the bewitchment of timespace by Sharon Stone.
One should not think of Stone as just a sex symbol: every generation has its slew of vamps, most of which leave no dent in memory. Most of the smokeshows will age into air, but the femme fatale lingers.
Part of the proceeds from Captured Moment: The Master’s Process will be donated to Farm2People, an LA-based non-profit working to create equity in the food supply chain by supporting local farmers and food-insecure communities through regeneratively grown produce.
The third film in the Auerbach series is Efficiency, the only video in the series dedicated to an athlete, not an actor. The sports’ star in question is none other than Mike Tyson, whom Auerbach photographed in 2020 for Haute Living, a luxury bimonthly publication.
Two great modern masculine archetypes of force and flow—the boxer and the jazzman—take pride of place in the American imaginary. Among the former, Tyson remains an undisputed titan: a heavyweight of heavyweights, with a life suitably bedecked in triumph, sacrifice and controversy. As with jazz, the Empyrean of boxing admits no easy heroes—nor does it want them. These are men the way gods dreamt them; men with terribilità.
The second film in the Auerbach series is Adaptation, centered around one of the most prominent male stars of the 2000s, Benedict Cumberbatch.
These photos were taken for GQ UK in 2014, when Cumberbatch was in the heat of his fame, coming off Season 3 of the acclaimed BBC adaptation of Sherlock. He was in Boston, filming Scott Cooper’s Black Mass—the Whitey Bulger crime drama with Johnny Depp—so expectations were great, time was of the essence, and timing—as ever—eternal.
Accursed Share continues to set precedents—in this case, the next step in dynamic NFT architecture, future-proofing, and enhanced security—by providing innovations that raise the standard for smart contracts and align it with the ethos of our coming NFT innovation platform, where these features will come stock.
Accursed Share’s first NFT collaboration will represent the evolving relationship between each of the top 100 listings on Ideamarket—10,000 pairs of concepts—through innovative data visualisation art. Think of them as trading pairs, that evolve in relation to market activity over time.
2021 has been Julien Nguyen’s year. In July-August, he was the youngest painter to have a solo exhibition at Matthew Marks’ prestigious New York gallery. Through his collaboration with Ottolinger, he has made fans of celebrities like Dua Lipa, SZA and Bella Hadid. The world and the artworld alike are his oysters. There is little reason, other than being a true artist, for anyone in his position to dabble in the newfangled NFT space. Yet here he is, developing a whole new project, far removed from anything he’s done before, with Accursed Share.
Among the many artistic disciplines Curse NFT seamlessly integrates—film, 3D photography, conceptual art, performance, the digital and the literary—it is easy to understate the role that music has played in the project. Curse NFT is so iconic that, if seen whilst scrolling through a Twitter timeline, one might assume the image is static—and silent.
“We are incredibly excited to be working with Michael. As a blockchain visionary, his understanding of what’s needed to build a successful PR strategy in this space will help Accursed Share reach millions.”

With the assistance of Protagon, the visual effects wizards for Marvel, Accursed Share is minting a new, hyperrealistic 3D image of Krystall that responds to the changing price of Ethereum and is traceable to her through Chainlink’s cutting-edge Keeper oracle technology.
We plan to continue making it easier for artists of all levels to generate NFT art by using Chainlink to automate data-driven updates to their appearance and distribute potential rewards. Ultimately, this will test the boundaries of storytelling, value, and smart contract technology as they converge in a new artform.
We are excited to announce that Accursed Share’s first NFT project, Curse NFT, will soon be live on Ethereum. Curse NFT is for auction at CurseNFT.com. The launch is made possible by technology collaborations from OpenSea, DeFi Network, Chainlink, and PROTAGON, enabling us to bring the project to life and make it available to the world.
