This project is a creative economic model for a specific new art market to sustain critical contemporary art. Please note that the texts and the concept of this project are still in beta version, which means that they might change during the next months.

The diagrams and the research offers a simple economic analysis of how value is created in contemporary art and proposes an innovative model that allows everyone to invest in art that matters with a new type of collectable objects.

The platform for selling unique digital art objects will be available in a few months, probably around late 2014.
