An online marketplace for digital art

When Bill Gates built his gigantic mansion on Lake Washington, one of the most talked-about features was the video wall that displayed digital versions of artwork.

While many marveled at this innovative idea in the early 90s, few had the ability to recreate a digital art collection at home.

Fast forward to 2011, this is about to change with the launch of s[edition] – a new website for “digital limited edition art”.

But what exactly does that mean?

According to co-founders Harry Blain and Robert Norton, s[edition] enables artists to create purely digital artwork, such as the images below, with technology that limits how many copies of the piece can exist.
