I’m writing to let you know that my friend Philipp Schmitt and I are participating in the Printed Matter Virtual Art Book Fair, which is taking place online from today (Feb 24th) until February 28th.
You can find our “booth” here https://akkapeddischmitt.pmvabf.org/
And you can find the main page for PMVABF here
I am selling a new flipbook I made using a machine learning model I trained on stills from Bharatanatyam footage.
I am also selling Risograph prints made using a machine learning model trained on my family photographs and photos from S.T.A.R.S.
I’m selling a few other prints as well so please check out our “booth”….
IRL or AFK, we would have had sliding scale prices. So if you want a print/book and feel the cost is prohibitive, please reach out as I am also open to trades and slightly different prices.
On that note, I should also say I’m in search of ways to lower the cost of production specifically on the Bharatanatyam book through finding a cheaper printer. If anyone has any advice, or a printer in NYC they like let me know! As is, I’ve been printing the pages myself (ink$$$) and hand binding them.
Ok I think that’s all for now in terms of pitching my own stuff! I strongly encourage people to check out the schedule for PMVABF as there are some interesting workshops and live music happening.
Sending you all lots of love,
