Art In The Era Of The Internet: The Impact of Kickstarter, Creative Commons & Creators Project

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am loving what PBS is doing with their online series. And here is episode two of the second season of Off Book

The internet has intensified connections between people across the planet. In this episode they take a look at the impact of this new interconnectivity on the art world. Traditional funding models are dissolving, new forms of expressing ownership have arisen to accomodate for remix culture, and artists are finding ways to connect physical art experiences and traditions to the internet. In the digital era, the experience of art from the perspective of the artist and the art audience is shifting rapidly, and bringing more people into the creative process. 

Featuring:

Yancey Strickler, Co-Founder of Kickstarter
Lawrence Lessig, Co-Founder of Creative Commons
Ciel Hunter, Creative Director of Creators Project
Julia Kaganskiy, Editor of Creators Project
