I am using a modified version of Rafael Rozendaal’s art website sales contract for the sale of web based art pieces. Rafael’s model is an important one that allows for the collection of Internet based art while still keeping that art available online for free for all to view. My fork of this contract is free to use and modify as well and can be downloaded here (.pdf). Both contracts are conceptually similar and involve the purchase of art websites in exchange for the transfer of the domain name (the URL), credit in the TITLE tag, digital files on a media device (in this case a wifi router) and a certificate of authenticity.
blimp-on-deepskyblue.com was shown at XPO Gallery’s Offline Art exhibition, curated by Aram Bartholl. The piece is part of the Tribute To Heather series, which is currently on display at the Museum of Moving Image.
