MOCAtv is pleased to announce its latest Artist Video Project, ROZENDAAL X YOU: THE URL PROJECT.
In this first installment of The ART X YOU Series, we're proud to present a collaboration between one of the most talented internet artists in the world and you. Rafaël Rozendaal was the first visual artist to sell websites as art and since then over 40 million people per year became part of his community.
The collaboration is simple. You create an original idea for an URL and submit it in the user comments below the video on MOCAtv YouTube channel and Rafaël will pick the most inspiring submission and turn it into an art piece itself.
