Behind with your Christmas shopping? Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey has the answer: artworks doubling as the world’s most giveable gift, Socks.
During a live online performance on Saturday 16 December, Bailey used his Lean Artist Pro gestural painting software, to craft each sock in real-time in direct response to audience feedback. Modelled on the fail fast, succeed sooner mantras of successful startups, Bailey’s project shows how artists can deploy user-centred iterative methods to create works of cultural power, economic value and undeniable usefulness.
