Hi all,

I’m doing some research about film works that only exists for a short
while, films screened once and then destroyed, films made and never
screened, and so on.

I’m doing some work in this area and are interested historically.
Would be interested in all your knowledge concerning this subject. Any
info or pointers much appreciated.

Since 2006 I have released films on the file sharing networks only in
a project I called P2P ART - The aesthetics of ephemerality.

Art made for - and only available on - the peer to peer networks.
The original artwork is first shared by the artist until one other
user has downloaded it.
After that the artwork will be available for as long as other users share it.

The original file and all the material used to create it are deleted
by the artist.
”There’s no original”

Feel free to don’t or download the films, watch it and share it for as
long as you like. Or delete it immediately. The aesthetics of
