Disrupting the Continuum - Mark Hancock looks at Rob Myers’ Shareable
Mark Hancock looks at Rob Myers’ Shareable Readymades, which combine
Open Source culture with a new perspective on the idea of original and
copyrighted artworks. As Hancock discovers, the result is a project that
explores our consumerist ideas about owning art, alongside the way the
Internet changes our relationship to production and sharing. Artworks
are also found to be no longer constrained by time and space. Access to
the raw data of the source file might be all that is needed to create
them and a new version of art history.
You can also find Mark's original article on Collaboration and Freedom –
The World of Free and Open Source Art
Part of the Furtherfield collection commissioned by Arts Council England
for Thinking Digital. 2011.
