I recently blogged about websites-as-graphs. Now it’s time to introduce you to one-thousand-paintings as well.
When I found the websites-as-graphs site, it referred me to www.onethousandpaintings.com to support the author. So, I decided to check it out. I found an intriguing conceptual art site. Sala, the author of both sites, is in the process of painting and selling paintings of all the numbers from 1 to 1000.
I love both the idea, and his method of using the Internet to market the paintings. He’s masterminded a viral marketing campaign that’s been very successful to date. I just purchased the number 72, which was the 500th painting to be sold. He’s already over half way to his goal of selling 1000 paintings. I wish him success in this project!
