Donation - the “new” economy

So now i've created an PayPal account (its the white button on the right column) where you can donate money to support me and my art. This "new" way of economy should really get more adepts, people gettin' paid for what they like to do and receiving how much the paying side has and wants to offer.

This is already happening with OpenSource Softwares and Websites like Wikipedia. Now its time to extend this to other business and specially to art. In electronic music this already started with netlabels like Thinner/Autoplate and some others where you can freely download and share song using CreativeCommons Licenses. And you donate how much YOU want and "think" he's needing. I'm saying "think" because none of them (art projects) shows how much was received and in what it was used like wikipedia does.

That's why i've created the budget link where i'll show what i bought, whom i supported, how much i received etc...

I'll use this money to buy art'n'tech stuff and to donate to other projects and people the i sympathize with.


Here is the status of my received donations:

  • Total in 2008: 40.00 US$

  • Total in 2007: 00.00 US$

  • Total in 2006: 10.00 US$

Thanks, iuri

Iuri Kothe's Art Curriculum

A short biography

Born in the city of São Paulo, Brazil (1980), Iuri Kothe dedicates remarkable talent to the art of collage since 2003 – both analog, with pieces of magazine photographs, and digital, with pictures processed on Photoshop.
His images show good precision, aesthetic appeal and high suggestive impact and have attracted the attention of journalists, who see a peculiar form of communication; and other artists, stimulated to bring them to public exhibition.

Other Movements

Iuri Kothe began to study classic piano at the age of six and today starts experimental electronic production with samplers, synths and programs – a musical expression of the visual collages that he makes with paper and mouse. With Felipe Barbirato forms the duo Ghiroma, which explores textures and ambiences.
Iuri lived in Rostock [Germany], some Brazilian cities and is now established in Rio de Janeiro. He holds a degree in Electrical Engineering and a M.Sc. in Digital Audio Processing.
Iuri volunteered in 2005 at Espaço Logos Sagrado - Rio de Janeiro, teaching art to poor children in a slam; and was part of the production staff of Fashion Real show, at Parque Laje (RJ), in September 11th, 2004, with social causes.

this one is hanged on my fridge.

Blog online

So now i have a blog (again). Hopefully i'll use this one to:

  • post my new artworks;

  • write about things: webstuff, softwares and cool links and articles.

And i'll do this in english. Maybe i'll write some posts in portuguese, specially some tutorials on web stuff and softwares, but i'll tag them as "Portugues" (its Portuguese in Portuguese, without the accent: "Português").


The artworks i'm sharing here are all free for download and sharing.
I do this in my free time and maintain it by my work @ Portal do Voluntário.
