“Now you can buy art by the world’s leading contemporary artists at a price you can afford,” reads the promotion copy for s[edition], a venture that sells limited-edition digital stills or videos of works by artists such as Damian Hirst and Yoko Ono. A full-screen HD video of Hirst’s famous diamond-studded human skull, for instance, sells for $800. Another video, of Elmgreen & Dragset’s “Prada Marfa” sculpture goes for $1,600. We suppose these options are far less expensive than buying actual physical artwork. Then again, you can also view these and other pieces of artwork online anytime you want for free, via Google Images and other services.
