A solo exhibition financed by Kickstarter
‘Famous New Media Artist’ Jeremy Bailey was funded by crowdfunding website Kickstarter. In this project Bailey will ‘paint’ portraits with AR. Kickstarter’s funders are put in the spotlight in Bailey’s project; he intends to make portraits, enhanced with an AR layer, of the largely anonymous group of financial backers. Bailey’s idea is loosely based on portraits by old masters who painted important and powerful people. According to Bailey, this not only provided an income, but also gave artists the opportunity to show their technique.
