Want to possess a unique work of digital art, but don’t want to destroy the environment doing so?
NFTS (NON-FUNGIBLE TOKENS) AND NFT ART CONSUME A WALLOP OF ELECTRICITY BECAUSE THEY RELY ON THE LABORIOUS PROOF-OF-WORK ALGORITHM. BUT NSFT ART IS GUARANTEED UNIQUE AND, AT A MAXIMUM OF 5 MB PER FILE, PUTS NARY A DENT IN THE GLOBAL CARBON FOOTPRINT!
Join the fun below and bid on our NSFT silent blind auction for these unique tiny beauties
during the live festival week, August 9-14.
Happy owners of NSFT artworks will receive a handcrafted certificate with a bespoke rubber stamp denoting ownership. The artists will receive all the funds raised at auction and retain the right to distribute copies of the work.
This year we’re introducing the fun category NSFT (Not So F***ing Tiny) Art to help folks think about the climate catastrophe that is NFT (non-fungible token) art. Lots of artists, understandably eager to earn income and protect their rights, have taken to making NFT artworks. Digital artworks are, by definition, not unique. NFTs render digital video artworks unique, but at an intolerable cost to the planet because their uniqueness relies on the energy-intensive Ethereum blockchain…
…This is why we love NSFT art! Purchasers of NSFT art receive a handcrafted certificate with a bespoke rubber stamp denoting ownership. The artists get paid directly and remain free to distribute copies as they wish. Welcome to a system of digital-art patronage that dignifies both artist and patron and honors the work of art, with no cost to the environment!
