Marshall McLuhan was known for his pervasiveness in the media. His thought provoking TV interviews were prime time entertainment, but the media has changed significantly since McLuhan was on every channel and in every newspaper headline. The internet makes everyone a journalist (blogs, twitter, Facebook). There just isn’t nearly enough time for a famous new media artist to satisfy the demands of the modern press. Jeremy Bailey has created new web software that solves this problem and re-invents the way artists communicate with the media, allowing them to focus on doing what they do best: making art.
Jeremy Bailey is a Toronto-based new media and performance artist whose work explores custom software in a performative context. Recent projects include performances at the Tate Liverpool and the New Museum in New York.
