These last few weeks, crypto art and digital art has invaded the mainstream with news of NFT artworks sold for outrageous amounts. NFTs have been lauded as the next revolution for digital artists to make a living, blamed as the cause for environmental disasters, and declared as a Ponzi scheme. In the end, there is more art created with digital tools in this market than digital art. Christiane Paul probably said it best in NFT Art Isn't as Groundbreaking as It Seems: "What I've seen billed as 'art' in so many of these NFT articles I find a little horrifying."

Few of those articles have been aggregated here, as much of the effort was spent adding academic programs and adjacent content this past month, as I started presenting Arts & Médias to university students. On that note: if you are interested in me presenting the project to your class—whether you are a professor or a student—do get in touch, and I'll be more than happy to do so.

The photo above was taken during a visit to the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, which reopened to the public this month.

See last month's aggregated content below in the related content sections.
