Building on the work of the Open Lab and its predecessor the R&D Lab, the Open Culture Research Group explores the history of craft traditions, free software, open source, creative commons, and other models of shared, open culture.
Part of an Open Culture, is the culture of sharing, so we have organized a series of skillshares about a range of issues: From how to share your wifi safely, to how to best advocate for open licensing among artists and visual makers. There is also a distinct interest in understanding the possible interaction between open licenses and forms of distribution, be that an art gallery, a furniture manufacturer, or a type foundry.
One of our current research threads focuses on design methodologies toward social change and critical intervention. Follow the Open Culture research blog as it develops.
