F.A.T. GOLD - Panel: Artists as Hackers (Part 2 of 4)
F.A.T. GOLD: Five Years of Free Art & Technology
Curated by Lindsay Howard
April 1–20, 2013
"The free software and arts communities are filled with people motivated not just by money but by the act of creation and a drive to make meaningful, or at least functional, contributions to society," writes F.A.T. Lab co-founder Evan Roth in his recent essay, Artist Hacker: From Free Software to Fine Art. Inspired by the philosophy put forth by Roth, Eyebeam hosted a panel on Thursday April 4 from 7:00pm–8:30pm called "Artists as Hackers". The discussion brought together Roth and F.A.T. Fellows Aram Bartholl, Tobias Leingruber, James Powderly, and Addie Wagenknecht, moderated by Christiane Paul, for a look at how hacker culture has influenced a new generation of artists.
