What would the world be like if Roy Ascott's "La Plissure du Texte" (or your favorite work of net.art or proto-net.art) sold at auction for $34.2 million instead of an abstract painting by Gerhard RIchter? In what sort of world (and artworld) would that be possible?
I asked this question as a Facebook status update and it has spurred some interesting discussion. I'd like to share that with the NMC community and invite and encourage you to participate in the dialogue...
I've consolidated the question and responses in a Facebook Note which is publicly accessible, though you have to be logged in to add content:
