Interesting to note, in the article: that the artist, whose work focuses on society’s alternating obsessions and fears of technology, set out to create and publish online a new artwork every day, a task he has been at for 13 years.
The works, known as “Everydays,” come together in the Christie’s lot as a composite of every single individual image put into a single place.
“Together, this work presents an extensive glimpse into Beeple’s artistic journey from his early days of anonymity to the digital art star that he is today,” according to a statement from Christie’s.
Puts me in mind of the current Pixels 100 Day Challenge. Think any of us is game for 13 + years? :)
It looks very much like the result of compiling images using mosaic generating software.
I used mosaic software years ago — a fun exercise in using compilation of images from your own library, applied to create a photo mosaic.
Although using it was fun, the novelty wore off pronto. Might revisit some day or other.
I recommended in the February Suggestion thread that we should sell as an accessory Certificates of authenticity as i had this kind of thing in mind, the amount of digital prints photography/digital art selling is growing yearly.
A certificate of authenticity would offer the buyer proof of purchase, artist name, print dimensions, paper used, sale number, and price paid. I say that information would be really useful when the print came up for resale.
There are some amazing digital artists/print designers out there and it is obvious some artists work is more desirable than others.
When that artist passes away, like art the value of that digital artists work will increase in value, investing in digital art has a future, a certificate of authenticity definitely has a role to protect and increase the original value.
Great artwork Roy and great idea selling one of a kind wall art prints, the ultimate limited edition. Do you provide a certificate of authenticity as i mentioned with all of the important metadata? My worry for you top digital artists is that your prints can be bought/stolen and then copied and resold offline at markets etc.
I’m sure FAA could offer a certificate of authenticity/purchase for sale which would be watermarked throughout and include all the important information as previously mentioned.
I’m sure that would lead to more print sales, art regardless is and should be an investment, having all the information in paper form and including blockchain etc will provide a higher level of confidence for the buyer and if they decide to sell in future.
Many of us i’m sure watch the antique t.v shows (American Pickers etc), you see it all the time, if only we could prove it was an original etc etc.
No it doesn’t and registering a design as a creator is relatively cheap, but when buying a car you get the paperwork, when buying a house you get the title deed, ok not the same as buying art, but my idea is about promoting authenticity of purchase, consumer confidence is what attracts buyers, i know certificates are obligatory if selling limited editions, but let’s offer a fool proof certificate of purchase on the sale of all wall art.
I think this idea can be offered as an accessory sale, optional, FAA could lead the way.
