Mozilla and Eyebeam are pleased to announce the recipients of the Open(Art) Fellowship. The three selected fellows are Forrest Oliphant, Toby Schachman, and Nortd Labs (Addie Wagenknecht and Stefan Hechenberger). Together, these creative technologists will be exploring the frontier of art and the open web as part of our new Open(Art) program.

Pushing the boundaries of creative code

Open(Art) is a joint initiative launched by Eyebeam and Mozilla to support creativity at the intersection of art and the open web. It is a unique opportunity for artists and technologists to collaborate on new work that catalyzes creative participation on a global scale. Selected artists and technologists develop projects that push the boundaries of online or networked culture and address contemporary social challenges, while contributing to the community of practice around creative code.

Three Open(Art) Fellows were selected from an open call for proposals, and awarded a $15,000 production budget and resources to develop their projects, including desk space and access to design, research, and fabrication studios at Eyebeam’s New York location. The Fellows' work is presented through an exhibition and workshops taking place at Eyebeam, July 12 – August 11, 2013.

As a part of our (Galia Offri & mine) involvement in this year’s Transmediale Festival in Berlin we participated in a panel discussion titled “Lost in The Open”. The focus of the discussion which I moderated was to hash out some of the challenges for Free Culture beyond its epic battles against centralized institutions, record companies, major film studios, copyright regimes…

I am including here the videos for the full panel beginning with introductions by the 5 panelists and continuing with the full discussion and audience Q&A.
