Ikohaus Gallery now holds some close to 300 works and is still growing. Thus the reason for working with one unified gallery constructed from the CodexProtocol database
As we start to include other forward thinking digital artist there became the need to track which works are available and what is not due to the records of the works having been sold or transferred. What we came to realize is that while the artist owns the actual image that was created, the patron owns the Codex record including the image.
For example new Ikohaus Gallery artist Connie Digital’s ‘#1038 Shh 2’ is just that, one particular image of #1038 Shh 2 for which as a verified Codex Gallery we can not only attest to it’s originality, but you can also see the provenance of the creator yourself right in the details.
IkoVuX is a system that I created around 2006 which became the defacto system for viewing digital works on a device. Now we include it with every digital Codex record to foster putting published or acquired works out into the Creative Commons domain for viewing purposes only.
As long as the Codex record is on Public the coding will show, which can simply be copied and pasted into a browser for viewing, sharing the artwork globally while still retaining ownership.
