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.
