art-making as a process of encryption

image as a placeholder for value

the edges of the image as property

any rando can now turn your artwork into an NFT

cultural artefacts as the material basis of cryptocurrency

a guarantee of value hinging on scarcity and intellectual capital

unresolved concerns about quality, ownership and authenticity


replace the word “art” with “nft” and “EUR” with “ETH”

non-fungible tokens, fungible art

conflating the exchange with the exchanged


infinite reproducibility vs. artificial scarcity

language less related to art, aesthetics emotion or story

language more related to business, transactions, collecting and ownership
