We are one of the UK's first online art galleries.
We represent student and graduate artists
by providing a platform that links the artist as they
graduate with the art buying public.
Our Nesta R&D grant is going to be
used for a project called Artelite.
Artelite is going to be seeking to future-proof
the relationship between artists, galleries,
arts organisations, and buyers online.
The value that I believe this research and technology is
going to have for arts organisations and galleries.
The initial one is paperwork takes a long time.
You can't rush lawyers.
The second thing that I've learned
is to be responsive to your research results.
They probably won't actually turn out
what you expected them to 100%, and you
need to be able to react to that.
And the third thing is if you do hit a hold up or something
changes along the way, be able-- be
adaptable-- to be able to change your focus onto another element
of the project because things very quickly pile up
and you want to make sure you've been
responsive to what you need to do.
