I went to an NFT art exhibition, and it was weird

Love them, loathe them or simply don't understand them (you're not alone), it looks like NFTs are here to stay. The craze for non-fungible tokens is only growing, and pieces continue to sell for astronomical amounts of money. But can NFTs ever hold a candle to more traditional art? If this NFT art exhibition is anything to go by, yes and no.

Launched as part of OFFF Barcelona 2022, Ouche is a new NFT platform (or "digital playground") created by the OFFF community. I went along to the launch exhibition, featuring 10 NFTs from the platform's first collection, Roads Not Taken – and came away feeling more confused than ever about where I stand on NFTs.
