An artworks value has typically been determined by (superficially) limiting the supply or editions of a piece as determined by the artist, gallery and collectors. We call BS. Art is only valuable if it changes society. Impacting society is only possible if it becomes part of culture. Culture can only be rapidly affected when done virally.
Currently, art supply chains often create the opposite of a cultural revolution by only allowing the elite to buy or see collections. At F.A.T., we want to create and distribute to a new contextualization of art and culture through the use of open licenses, open ideas and open art.
A disintermediation of The Art World, starting now.
Limited Editions of Unlimited is a F.A.T. artwork series by Resident FATtie Addie Wagenknecht which will be released and available online for free. Download and print the first in the series here or have someone print it for you.
Then what..? Put it on your walls, on buildings, hang it up in the MoMa, give to your friends, your Grandma, lick it, eat it (maybe it taste good)…. we want to see us everywhere.
Follows are instructions on how to get a ton of 3D celebrity models for about $10. It takes about an afternoon to accomplish.
1) Get a DSLR and set lens to 35mm and aperture to F10
2) Go to your local wax museum
3) Take clear, crisp, bright pictures of each celebrity likeness from all angles
4) Download 123D Catch
5) Load the pictures one celebrity at a time into the software
6) Save the model as an .obj and do whatever you want with it.
The best part about going to the wax museum is they often have celebrities both living and dead. Historical figures? No problem. I now have a 3D model of the entire last supper.
