Work from P2P Art.
P2P art is a brilliant examination of the ephemeral nature of art, and in many ways, contemporary culture. It is art realeased into the wild and reliant on the viewer to keep the work in existence (in the most literal sense). Go check out the other videos on his website as well, it is a huge archive of good.
“Art made for – and only available on – the peer to peer networks. The original artwork is first shared by the artist until one other user has downloaded it. After that the artwork will be available for as long as other users share it. The original file and all the material used to create it are deleted by the artist. ”There’s no original”. A project from Swedish artist Anders Weberg started in 2006. P2P Art – The aesthetics of ephemerality.” – Anders Weberg
