You know that awesome feature in Gmail where it shows you the first couple of lines of an email so you don’t have to open it letting you ignore a bunch of emails you don’t want to deal with.

It looks like this:

That is great unless you REALLY want someone to open the damn email…

If you make the top three lines:

NO SPOILERS
-~=-*’`^”^`’*-=~+,.._..,+~=-*’`^”^`’*-=~-
YOU HAVE TO OPEN IT

Now when send your friends an email asking them to do a favor they won’t see any spoilers from the email and they will be forced to click on it to figure out that you’re asking for a favor. When they go to their inbox they will see this:

Mostly I fail at ASCII art. You people get creative and make more and leave them in the comments. Best one gets a virtual gold star.

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 from Addie Wagenknecht/FAT labs
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.
