Joining the debate about the understanding of an "original" in times of unlimited reproduction of imagery in digital spheres and the creation of artificial scarcity through NFTs, I relate with my project "Western Flag (NFT) 2" to Sherries Levine and Elaine Sturtevants practise of appropriation and reproduction of famous artworks.

I captured John Gerrard's 30-sec video loop "Western Flag (NFT)" and reproduced it with the help of 3D software. I am now selling this reproduction frame by frame as NFTs. Purchasing one of the frames will provide you with the whole "original" video-file of "Western Flag (NFT) 2" as well as the book "Western Flag (NFT) 2".

The whole NFT-collection "Western Flag (NFT) 2" will become a communally owned digital Video.
