Mystery of monoliths 'solved' as artists claim responsibility - and sell them for £35,500

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/mystery-monoliths-solved-artists-claim-23118306

The appearance of metal monoliths in both the US and Europe fuelled speculation among conspiracy theorists and Sci-fi lovers that they came from aliens - but they have now been claimed by The Most Famous Artist

Everybody is parodying this. Hippos at the San Antonio Zoo have one too. There's not going to be big money in this. These things will be popping up all over. It's a running joke.

Now people all over the world have parodied the phenomenon. The local zoo has decided to join in on the fun.

They're a rudimentary yet elegant design.  But 35K??? lmao you must be joking!

Swing by our shop and we'll make one in half a day after one call to the local metal supply.

A few precise cuts, four bends, with three seams to close up.  I'd even blind weld the internals and leave no surface indicators.  (and that Romanian one, with the amateur brushwork surface treatment reveals their lack of experience).

Easily created in a matter of hours by hand. 

 

eta:  the one impressive aspect to me was where they installed the Utah version.  Getting there and installing it in that spot was the real feat and the real work.  I do location and prop work in Hollyweird.  Getting that thing out there was a challenge.

35000 for a knockoff of the original piece? Yeah, that sure is someone trying to cash in on a trend.

Utah Monolith: Alien hunter believes structure may have been taken to Area 51

https://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/1368440/utah-monolith-aliens-area-51-men-in-black-alien-news-evg

Alien hunters and conspiracy theorists were sent into a frenzy on November 18 when a helicopter flyby from the Utah Department of Public Safety found a huge metal structure in the middle of the Utah desert. The mysterious monolith popped up without reason and warning, leading experts to be baffled over its discovery. However, as mysteriously as it arrived, the monolith vanished over the weekend of November 28.

:alien: :D

I knew that it was just  matter of time before someone claimed to have done this. We will see now how many others make the claim. Whoever did it though did a nice job of creating an interesting thing.

Monolith appears on Isle of Wight (UK)

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-hampshire-55212336

 

The unusual mirrored structure was discovered on the Isle of Wight, an island off the south coast of England.

Island resident Alexia Fishwick said she "was dumbstruck" when she came across it during a walk on Sunday and described it as "really quite magical".

A monolith found in Utah last month created wild speculation on social media and apparent copycats.

Many observers have presumed they were art installations left by sculptors.

Artists have been doing this for a long time.

John McCracken is a famous artist who has been making these styles of monoliths for decades. This 'The Most Famous Artist' group are most likely just trying to get themselves some free publicity and buzz.
