The Shortest Video Art Ever Sold is a site-specific physical curatorial project, offering an exclusive â€śscreeningâ€ť of new art by top net artists in the newest social media format, Vine â€“ a video all of six seconds long. SVAES is presented in a purposely analog/DIY format, a Fair Shopping Network â€śtelevision programâ€ť that will grant the fair goers opportunity to immediately purchase the Vine Edition of 1 and, for an extra fee, have the artist tweet the new artistic acquisition at the patron, so they can have their collecting acknowledged publicly. ! SVAES subverts the insular art market, the Vine brand, the â€ślike economyâ€ť of the social media and video art as property/commodity.
