Artist, writer and hacker, Rob Myers, makes artworks and projects about contemporary society using free software. Here he discusses Free and Open Source culture and the different ways it supports collaboration and freedom from censorship for contemporary artists. He talks about his social media artwork the cybernetic artworld and his new series of shareable DIY ‘readymades’. This is where recipes for iconic art objects from the history of appropriation and remix culture can be freely downloaded and sent to 3D printers so anyone can receive their own remade readymade through the post. This interview touches on questions of how artists live in a post copyright world and potential uses for art-related open data.
