Are the monoliths simply art installations ? Image Credit: Utah Department of Public Safety
An art group has come forward to claim responsibility for creating the Utah and California monoliths.
The mystery of who is behind the mysterious '2001' inspired sructures has finally been solved; that is, at least, based on the apparent confession of 'The Most Famous Artist' - a global artist community that has taken responsibility for creating them and is now selling replicas on its website.
Speculation over the nature and origins of the monoliths, which have turned up in Utah, California and even Romania, had been rife for weeks, with many suspecting that they were part of some sort of promotional stunt, perhaps for an upcoming movie or brand awareness campaign.
It seems now however that it is simply a stunt designed to sell replicas for upwards of $45,000.
"I am not able to say much because of legalities of the original installation," said founder Matty Mo.
"I can say we are well known for stunts of this nature and at this time we are offering authentic art objects through monoliths-as-a-service. I cannot issue additional images at this time but I can promise more on this in the coming days and weeks."
But is the group really responsible for the monoliths or are they simply attempting to make money on the back of the phenomenon ?
The search for answers continues.
