Kickstarter is a form of crowd funding. According to Wikipedia, it is "the collective cooperation, attention and trust by people who network and pool their money and other resources together, usually via the Internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations. Crowd funding occurs for any variety of purposes, from disaster relief to citizen journalism to artists seeking support form fans, to political campaigns, to funding a startup company or small business or creating free software."
The Urban Abstract Experience is a result of discovering sidewalk drawings, graffiti, faded signs, decomposing posters, and abandoned buildings. Do you remember any that you have passed? You may remember their location, but do you remember how they looked? Maybe not. Unfortunately, many of these will be removed before they are saved.
Through the Urban Abstract Experience a small percentage of these images will be preserved and spark an interest in the value these images as potential artworks.
Watch for the launch of the project on October 14, 2011!
