The Oxford English Dictionary defines art as:
The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
Technology has revolutionised art, in its generation as well as its distribution, and some of the most creative opportunities today exist at the nexus of science and art. Scientist Mike Tyka took inspiration from his study of protein molecule folding and became a sculptor. In this TED Talk he outlines how neural networks can create extraordinary art.
One application for new top-level domains is for an organisation or brand to choose a new domain to highlight an alternative aspect to their work. Crowdfunding service Kickstarter wanted to highlight its origins in the art community, and also to showcase case studies of successful Kickstarter projects, i.e. the art of Kickstarter. The result: Kickstarter.art.
Visual artist and choreographer Shen Wei is based in New York. Not limited to one medium, his art is not merely painting or performance, resisting categorisation. .ART domain names offered an obvious solution for him, and he has become an early adopter of the new domain, at shenwei.art.
.ART domains have been in general availability for just over a year, and almost 30,000 have been registered so far. If you’ve got an arty idea, our €6.99* offer is a great way to try it out!
* Price excludes VAT and applies to the first year of a new registration only. Domain name will renew at the normal price (€11.99 ex VAT)
