Dis Magazine, March 2015

Rafaël Rozendaal creates websites that are individual works of art where each has a title that also serves as its domain name. Though collectors may own a website, they must pay for it to remain on public view. Please see Rozendaal’s art website sales contract (www.artwebsitesalescontract.com) and contact the gallery to confirm availability.
