BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, 2013 - Art F City is pleased to announce the debut of AFC Selects, a limited-edition USB drive containing exclusive artworks by 11 internationally renowned artists: Anthony Antonellis, Jacob Ciocci, Paul B. Davis, Rollin Leonard, Sara Ludy, Lorna Mills, Shana Moulton, Jon Rafman, Rafael Rozendaal, Bunny Rogers, and Nicolas Sassoon. Each set of artworks is contained on a luxury Mobiado USB drive crafted from a single piece of sapphire crystal. AFC Selects will be available at the Art F City booth at NADA New York.
AFC Selects is generously endowed with enormous talents. Published in an edition of 100, AFC Selects contains original, commissioned artwork, including museum-quality videos and screensavers, large-scale GIFs, and custom software patches. From Sara Ludy's 449 frame billowing cloud GIF, to Shana Moulton's video documenting the bizarre effects of new age massage, the drive contains work that is extraordinary, beautiful, and just plain weird. It is nothing short of amazing.
Custom ribbons and packaging for the drive have been designed by artist Bunny Rogers, and each drive comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Art F City’s Paddy Johnson and all eleven artists. AFC Selects will be the first portfolio of its kind to take net art offline and put it where the collector can have it — inside a single piece of sapphire.

Following Jon Rafman's Brand New Paint Job, The Wall's programme continues to explore the cut and paste world of digital imaging.
Over the next few weeks, Anthony Antonellis shows off his 'skillz' animating the tools and filters of Photoshop in his 2011 video. In part a reaction to the glossy perfection and hidden artistry of Photoshop-edited photographs, the piece also references communities of users who share their own Photoshop demo videos online.
