FIMART is a member-owned and controlled co-op executing on its mission of quickly, safely, and securely facilitating the purchase and sale of real, legally binding, fractional ownership of art pieces. Look Lateral is a service and technology provider to FIMART, licensing to FIMART a technology platform as well Tagging, Indexing, Provenance and Pricing services. As such, FIMART will be minting and selling the LOOK Utility Tokens during the upcoming ICO.
WHY FIMART
Through FIMART, Look Lateral is democratizing the world of art, making it more transparent, accessible, and liquid as more people are able to take part in buying art.
Transparent
False authenticity and fraudulent pricing have plagued the art market for centuries. Scarce availability of original documents, limited public access to archives, incongruences among authenticating experts and often an utter lack of information have prevented this from changing until now.
Accessible
The 6, 7 and even 8 figure prices in today’s art market makes purchasing art out of reach for most people. A platform for buying and selling fractional ownership of art pieces, combined with greater transparency, makes art ownership and art investment becomes a reality for many.
Liquid
The rare nature of artworks and their recognized value by “those in the know” creates a well-funded, but relatively illiquid market. Greater transparency and a platform for buying and selling fractional ownership leads to increased liquidity, which in turn leads to greater flexibility for owners and a more attractive asset class for investors.

Greater transparency and a platform for buying and selling fractional ownership leads to increased liquidity, which in turn leads to greater flexibility for owners and a more attractive asset class for investors.
PROCESS
Tagging.
The artwork is given a physical tag. The tagging technology is chosen with a specific sensitivity towards different artworks such as canvases, sculptures or objects. Tagging is also selected to preserve the integrity of artworks without interfering with any aesthetic attributes
Provenance.
The tagged artwork is then pegged into Look Lateral’s dedicated DragonChain blockchain technology stack. Information about the artwork begins to flow: a “bounty” is offered by the artwork owner which rewards those who provide reliable information
Pricing.
An artwork that receives a sufficiently high provenance score and satisfies legal and quality compliance regulations, can be matched against a hedonic pricing system to obtain a realistic estimation of its value. The pricing system organizes the information available in different databases and combines it with big data to output a series of indexes
FIMART.
The artwork is “listed” on FIMART (Fractionalized Market of Art), a process that determines rights, governance rules, pricing, and creates the legally binding fractional ownership contracts. Once listed, the buying and selling of fractional ownership of the art piece is available to members of the FIMART co-op.
ECOSYSTEM
why join the digital renaissance

MUSEUMS tag their artwork, join the FIMART to increasy liquidity and long-term revenue while retaining majority ownership of art work.
GALLERIES tag their artwork and sell to new collectors and investors via FIMART. Improve inventory control and reduce risk.
ARTISTS tag their works and trace the future movement of their art work for long-term security and addtional income. Retain ownership but also new revenue.
CURATORS get better informations, new revenues based on new services.
COLLECTORS get more liquidity opportunities and complete and certified informations.
