Jeremy Bailey has been described by Filmmaker magazine as, "a one-man revolution on the way we use video, computers and our bodies to create art."

Renowned for his use of augmented reality technologies and computer vision graphics to produce stimulating works of trans-media and live performance, Jeremy uses his over-embellished middle class, white-male ego, to subvert, critique and poke fun of the dominant hierarchies often associated with new media arts and its technologies.

Jeremy joins the FACT team on 5 February, and will be working with Curator, Omar Kholeif. 

During his residency at FACT, the artist will be developing research towards a new commission for Abandon Normal Devices 2012, which will take place across Manchester, Liverpool, and Lancaster in the summer. Jeremy, will also be delivering a series of lectures, and exciting workshops including a 'Computer Vision' workshop on 16 February.

Jeremy Bailey's residency is proudly supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, FACT and Abandon Normal Devices festival.
