They might not be considered the works of a Rembrandt, but a contemporary artist is painting a new picture on how web addresses can be used to create modern day masterpieces.
"...art lovers can buy a piece of digital art that comes with its own unique web address. Stephen Rumney's "online art installations" form part of his Domain Art exhibition.
As well as the online image, the buyer becomes the legal owner of its integrated website address and an art gallery installation of the image. "
The web entrepreneur has a few url palettes, with three that are currently featured in the collection for observers. WWW.MA (the cctld for Morocco but used as "modern art" in this case) is selling for 300,000 pounds, TheFutureOfArt.com for 18,000 and Un-titled.com for 6,000. All pieces can be viewed at the gallery website.
