When is a 1TB hard-drive not a 1TB hard-drive? When it's a $5m art installation

How much is a 1TB hard-drive worth? £50, £60?

How about $5 million?

That’s exactly the price of the “5 Million Dollars, 1 Terabyte” art installation at the Art 404 gallery. The piece is made up of a 1TB hard-drive full of pirated songs, software and more, including 124GB of music and Adobe’s Font Collection.

It’s meant as a commentary on freedom and art/ the price of piracy, but I think it probably works better as a digital time capsule.

I’ll give them £60 for it if the let me format it though. I could do with a few extra gigs of storage space…
