(Reposted as act of friendlyness by patrick simons..sorry)

I
've got some work for sale. Here's the long and short of it.

I'm going to be exhibiting a piece of mine called Exist.pl (some of
you may remember it as it was developed via discussions here on the
list as well as other lists) at the MakeArt festival in France in a
couple of weeks. The work will also be exhibited as part of the Piksel
festival in Bergen, Norway. Here in Iceland we have what's called The
Center for Icelandic Art. Their job is to provide financial assistance
to artists taking their work abroad. They're the only source for
travel grants for short trips like this one. I applied, I got rejected
(with no explanation of why), I have this nagging feeling that they
don't "get" this type of art. So what I would like to do now, is to
sell copies of this work to get some funds towards the trip (I had
already bought flight tickets before I got rejected). The work
consists of a piece of software running on a computer. It doesn't
produce any output but it's doing a lot of background work. So to
provide the viewer with some information on what's going on, four A2
sized posters, displaying the source code at various stages of the
softwares development, will be displayed.

The software itself is free under the GPL license and lives at
http://code.google.com/p/existpl

But I have for sale a limited edition of twenty sets of these posters.
I'll only sell them in sets. There are four posters in the set. These
are signed and numbered, high quality color prints suitable for
framing. Ideally, they would be displayed in a row on a wall with a
computer nearby to run the software when the owner chooses (but this
entirely up to the purchaser of the work). You can see a small version
of what they look like at the following URLs:

http://pallit.lhi.is/~palli/code2.pdf<http://pallit.lhi.is/%7Epalli/code2.pdf>
http://pallit.lhi.is/~palli/code3.pdf<http://pallit.lhi.is/%7Epalli/code3.pdf>
http://pallit.lhi.is/~palli/code4.pdf<http://pallit.lhi.is/%7Epalli/code4.pdf>

The price is $50 per set. If I manage to sell all twenty sets, this
will provide enough to cover printing and mailing costs, with the
remainder being approximately what I applied for from The Center for
Icelandic Art.

On top of being colorful and thought provoking, they create an
interesting visual pattern when lined up together.

Please contact me offlist if you're interested.
