A Dotty Idea


Most of my photos are about 6mp which means that they should sell for about 10 trillion dollars which might seem expensive, but they are quite pretty. This valuation is based on a real world one-pixel picture by a digital artist, Pak, that sold for US$1.36 million. It is a non-fungible token which uses blockchain to identify it, a technology that seems strange to most people, or least those that don’t have a spare million to buy a grey dot.

A million dollars will buy a house in many cities, feed a lot of hungry people, pay for 10 art teachers to explain why this is a great purchase or for 10 financial advisors to give advice on saving for your retirement.

Although not an art critic I know that some art is priceless but to me a single pixel seems only worthless.
