The You Museum by Jeremy Bailey is a media installation that's part business, art and commentary on some of the strange customs of people today. The project is essentially a personalized banner ad suite, which delivers targeted images to an individual. To sign up for "admission" to this museum that will follow you around online, users can opt in and choose categories of virtual art to be displayed.

Like most banner ad services, the You Museum uses data sourced from Google and Facebook to get a sense of your interests. When a user clicks on an ad, this provides the potential to make an art purchase. With help from Ontario Arts Council and Canada Arts Council grants, the You Museum may even become a project that is able to pay for itself.
