The F.A.T NIKA is a Fake Gucci for the attention economy.
"The Prix Ars Electronica is one of the most important yearly prizes in the field of electronic and interactive art, computer animation, digital culture and music". It is a handmade wooden statuette - copy of the Greek Nike of Samothrace - plated with gold. “Prix Ars Electronica” is a phrase composed of French, Latin and Spanish words, loosely translated as “Electronic Arts Prize.” (Source: Wikipedia.)
F.A.T NIKA is a freestyle copy of Ars Electronica’s Golden Nica. It is a 3d modeled object statuette, copied from Wikipedia images of the Greek Nike of Samothrace and Ars Electronica's Golden Nica.
This prestigious counterfeited award can be easily reproduced infinite times -digitally or physically-, custom and being used to recognize any expression you value (including yours!), without being part of the the artificial sanctity of juries, curators and gatekeepers.
