Friday I received my very own painting from the onethousandpaintings.com project. I purchased it a few months ago and it finally arrived. To me, this is a great collector’s piece and a small fragmet of Internet history or “old Internet lore” as I’m sure we’ll all call it in a few years.
The number holds a certain significance, but I’ll keep that private. The painting itself is very well done and now adorns the wall above my desk. The project is a rather fascinating blend of art, economics, internet hype, mathematics, and scarcity theory (I’ll pretend such a theory exists). Seems the 700′s are quite popular in this project.
