Pori Art Museum has published a report on the Creative Commons and Art seminar which I participated in with Kimmo and Kalle Kuisma. My talk is recapped on pages 10-12 and I’m very pleased with my contribution. I claimed that “Artists do not contribute to the commons – They claim phenomenons from the commons” (artists taint phenomena and mark it as their own). I also claim that skills are production tool (for artists) and shed light on the ideological origins of Ore.e Refineries (and the COOL 1.0 license).

Working on our Ihme-days presentation with Heini and Leena, packing stuff in preparation of my New York visit, preparing next weeks Horse & Performance course with Pietari and writing a lecture/presentation for expo2001∞ (organised by Daniel Kupferberg) events at Kunstraum Argh15 (I’ll give “An Introduction to Horselogical thinking” over skype or wire). Aaand.. Learning how to make cheesecake.

Flashed Face Distortion Effect is interesting. Wonder if could be reversed: Images of faces would be distorted so that the faces that flash would appear normal.

Talks at the Pori Art Museum Creative Commons and Art -event are available online. I’m not fully satisfied with my presentation (this was the first time I talked about copyleft/artistic licensing publicly). A fun day nonetheless. Kimmos presentation was solid and Kalles presentation about Korppiradio firm. The host of the event Anni Saisto gave an interesting talk about her role as an author of museum catalogue texts. Museum workers rarely name themselves and we speculated that this is one reason why museum catalogue/pedagogical texts seldom make strong claims.
