Open Sesame, Open Source
I did a talk last night for Its Nice That magazine on open source art projects, alongside amazing graphic designer Ken Garland. Its was really enjoyable and enlightening (and I'm never going to look at political graphics in the same way again).
In hommage to the open source sense of collaboration and information access here is a list of all the links and subjects I discussed:
Roland Barthes ‘The Death of the Author’ 1968
Hennessey Youngman on Relational Aesthetics
Introduction to net.art (1994-1999) by Natalie Bookchin and Alexei Shulgin
Olia Lialina 'My Boyfriend Came Back From The War' 1996
Douglas Davis' The World's First Collaborative Sentence' 1994
Natalie Bookchin 'Mass Ornament' 2009
Graffiti Research Lab at Ars Electronica, Linz (complete with a dose of Alicia Keyes)
Oliver Laric 'Missile Variations' 2009
Aleksandra Domanovic 'Nineteen Thirty'
