Podcast 36: My Copying

Click to play or download.My 36th podcast is, for a change, not about the Art Club.


Show Notes:I’ve been working my way through Lawrence Lessig‘s book, Free Culture. It’s a good read, even though it was written by a lawyer.

After the book plug, I spend the rest of the podcast talking about my views and experiences with copying throughout my life. A lot of the skill I’ve acquired as an artist is due to the fact that I’ve copied a lot of the artists that came before me. That’s one of the reasons why Creative Commons licenses are so cool. Without giving up what we own, we let future generations learn by copying what we’ve done and building on it.

[EDIT: There seems to have been a problem with Ourmedia.org posting the audio file. I think it’s fixed now, though.]
