Harry Blain is one of the forces behind this new digital art platform selling works for as much as £500:
[s]edition is website which will attempt to perform the combined roles of shop, gallery and an arty social media site. Potential buyers can log in for free to browse a gallery of limited edition digital artworks, which currently include an animated version of a 1503 Dürer watercolour by British artist Mat Collishaw, and a moving image by Shephard Fairey, whose ‘Hope’ poster of Barack Obama became the visual emblem of the America’s most recent presidential election.
Collectors can then begin to fill their private “vault”, which is protected by a password. Works will cost anywhere between £5 and £500, a price bracket deemed “affordable” by the gallerists and experts behind the experiment.
