“Art Is”, 2014/2017, DApp.
People have argued about the definition of art for millennia.
We finally have the techonomic means to settle this argument.
In “Art Is”, people can use the Ethereum network to pay to define art at a price equal to the strength of their certainty in the correctness of their definition. The results are an economically rational definition of art, far stronger than discourse paid for by third party cultural institutions.
The original “Art Is” from 2014 suffered from bitrot so I re-implemented it.
