A Case for Digital Art
New media artists are creating some of the most innovative and exciting art today. But how do you find a platform for work that only exists on a screen? The art marketplace, Daata Editions, has the answer and they want to share it with you.

The concept of digital art is a much-debated topic. For collectors, the idea of buying a work that’s not a physical object can be hard to grasp, and that makes it difficult for galleries to show the art in question. But the fact of the matter is that digital art is some of the most weirdly wonderful, smart work being made by young artists today. They just need a platform for it.
That’s where Daata Editions comes in. The pioneering online marketplace commissions 18 video, sound, and internet artists to create six new works each season. Launched last year, and now in its second series, which was released last week, Daata has worked with established artists such as Tracey Emin and up-and-comers like Chloe Wise and Amalia Ulman. Paradoxical filmmaker Jon Rafman is even giving away his Daata commission for free!

The most important part is that Daata is giving these artists the ability to create works that might not otherwise be made. And for that, we should all be grateful!
