Permanent Redirect: digital art that moves to a new URL when someone views it

Permanent Redirect Art

Donald Hanson has created a digital art piece called Permanent Redirect that moves to a new URL every time someone views it.

A net art piece that moves to a new URL whenever someone views it. It is not possible to link to the art piece. Over time the art piece will become very hard to view. This is an experiment in introducing artificial scarcity into digital work.

So, it was here and then here but now it’s not, so good luck tracking it down. Or, ok, it’s not really the point, but you can cheat a little and find a screenshot on Twitter. (via @nickbaum)
