Icommons Artist-in-Residency program is seeking artists who create work both in the physical and digital world and who engage with copyright in some way - either by using Creative Commons licenced content as their inspiration, or by licencing their work under CC; or artists who simply challenge the boundaries of copyright law. The residency will take place during the Icommons Summit 2007 in Croatia.
During the residency, the artists will be exploring different themes around what it means to be an artist creating in a digital world. The following topics will be investigated during the residency, and a workshop will be run by the artists at the Summit, based on the following themes:
- Different working modes: how do artists work with open content in their medium?
- Different presentation methods: what is the archival value of art made available online?
- Sustainability models: how do artists embrace ‘copyleft’ but still manage to pay the rent?
