89plus
89plus is a long-term, international, multi-platform research project co-founded by Simon Castets and Hans Ulrich Obrist. It is conceived as a mapping of the generation born in or after 1989. Without forecasting artistic trends or predicting future creation, 89plus manifests itself through panels, books, periodicals and exhibitions, bringing together individuals from a generation whose voices are only starting to be heard, yet which makes up almost half of the world’s population.Marked by several paradigm-shifting events, the year 1989 saw the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the start of the post-Cold War period; the introduction of the World Wide Web and the beginning of the universal availability of the Internet, as well as the orbit of the first Global Positioning System satellite. Positing a relationship between these world-changing events and creative production at large, 89plus introduces the work of some of this generation’s most inspiring protagonists.Since an introductory panel held in January 2013 at the DLD – Digital, Life, Design conference in Munich, 89plus has conducted research in Australia with Kaldor Public Art Projects and Hong Kong with Art Basel’s Salon series. In partnership with the Park Avenue Armory in New York, 89plus selected visual artist and curator Alex Dolan to be artist-in-residence during the Armory’s Under Construction series, taking place in September 2013.Open call
89plus announces an open call for artists, writers, architects, filmmakers, musicians, designers, scientists and technologists. There is only one rule: you must be 89plus—born in or after 1989. The open call is hosted at www.89plus.com.Submissions are kept on a private research database for consideration by the project’s co-curators. As the project continues in the years to come, those selected will be notified of their inclusion in new endeavours.Submissions are welcome at any time, however the mid-year deadline for 2013 activities is July 30, 2013.

www.89plus.com is kindly supported by DLD – Digital, Life, Design.

89plus is partnering with DIS Magazine for a special DIScrit 89plus, which will be announced shortly.

The 89plus Marathon: Friday 18 & Saturday 19 October 2013
Taking place in London during Frieze Art Fair and inspired by Sou Fujimoto’s cloud-like Pavilion 2013 for the Serpentine Gallery, the 89plus Marathon will bring emerging practitioners from all disciplines together with world-renowned artists and thinkers.

The 89plus Marathon will be the eighth in the Serpentine Gallery’s annual Marathon series, an ambitious event that brings together the fields of art, culture, science and technology.

The Serpentine Gallery Marathon series was conceived by Co-Director Hans Ulrich Obrist in 2006 and is deeply intertwined with the annual Serpentine Gallery Pavilion Commission, launched by Director Julia Peyton-Jones in 2000.

Energy drink maker Red Bull proposes skate-able art investment for Myrtle Edwards Park

Originally posted on Mental Flowers:


The Seattle City Government Parks & Recreation site recently hosted a public meeting to gather input on a proposed public art piece in Myrtle Edwards Park that will be used for skateboarding.

Energy drink maker Red Bull has approached Seattle Parks and Recreation about making a community investment that would include commissioning an artist to design and fabricate a unique piece of skate-able art. At the meeting, Seattle Parks presented the history of the proposed project, followed by an opportunity for the public to weigh in on the idea.

Myrtle Edwards Park is located at 3130 Alaskan Way on the shoreline of Elliott Bay, north of the Olympic Sculpture Park.

The Citywide Skatepark Plan, developed in 2006 and 2007 with extensive public process, designated Myrtle Edwards as a recommended site for a skatedot [editor: which is apparently smaller than a skatepark]. Since 2007, Seattle Parks and…

Artist Found Her Paintings On Not One, Or Two, But on Three Music Album Covers! Uncompensated and Uncredited!

Yesterday, we posted a video on how to do a reverse image search using TinEye.  Artist Corrine Bayraktaroglu also alerted us to the online tool Google Reverse Image Search. She wrote: “Early in May, I had read somewhere that you can do a reverse image search on Google.  So I tried it, and was shocked to find one of my photographs on a slide show for school digital backgrounds. Doing a reverse image search can help you find your images even if the infringer has renamed the file or stripped away the data. I continue to find other images being exploited and used for music covers, in music videos, by art and craft companies, etc.”

So when Artist Corrine first learned of  Google reverse image search and gave it a try searching some of her own art images she found her artwork used on several sites without crediting her. What did she do? Corrine submitted DMCA reports or Take Down letters to each site requesting that they remove her uncredited art images.
But then the artist also discovered her portrait painting of her daughter reproduced on the Zearle Youthful Folly music album cover without crediting her or compensating her. “The really sad part is that I don’t get a lot of traffic on my blog, and my art sales are almost zero, so I really didn’t think too many people were interested in my work.  I guess I got that all wrong, huh!” says Corrine. She has openly shared the details of the misuse of her art image on this album cover by writing about it on her blog, and you can read her post here.

Corrine sent us a photo of her original easel painting portrait of her daughter. She keeps the painting in her home. Corrine wrote: “For privacy/professional reasons I don’t want to use my daughter’s name or photograph” published online at this time. The photo above shows a larger version of Corrine’s portrait painting of her daughter displayed in a street art project. However, the artist is convinced that the Zearle Youthful Folly album cover art is not only her easel painting version of the portrait, but also her own photograph of her easel painting that she had once posted to her blog and not a photograph of the street art version of her art. “Nobody could have taken the image (used on the album cover), the photo is based on an interior shot, the lighting would be a very different and a crisper version (of the image) had it been taken outdoors. Plus the person responsible has admitted to using my photo in his email to me. When I posted the photo online it was blurred (just as on the album cover),” Corrine wrote to us.

The artist has now become proactive when sharing her art images.  Corrine wrote that when she started her blog 6 years ago, ” like any fairly new artist I wanted to promote my work. I made the mistake early on of putting out higher resolution pics.” Later, she posted only lower resolution photos of her work and eventually began using– ” a variety of means to try to protect my photographs and images of my paintings: using right-click features on my blog, reducing the size of the image, sometimes putting on a small watermark of my full name or an initial stamp with CB on the online version of the images.”  For the most part she was able to keep track of the use of her images. She sent out cease and desist notices when needed. “I kept regular track of my work, but regular searches didn’t expose the current crop of images.”  Only by using the reverse image search tool did Corrine make her discoveries. She has since deleted her Flickr account, removed many images from her Facebook page and her Picasa album, and put the bulk of her blog entries into draft mode.  “I have taken screenshots of infringing sites and made HUGE changes on my site. I’m vigilant about filing DMCA reports and have asked Google to remove some of my images, plus I’ve added a no pin (Pinterest) meta tag to my blog.”

This artist is fighting back in other ways too! And you can help her get visibility and raise awareness by sharing this blog post on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites using the share buttons at the bottom of this post. Also, visit the artist’s blog for more details–  http://jafabrit.blogspot.com

When Corrine Bayrak contacted Artist Marketing Resources, we shared copyright resources with the artist. As we were discussing options, the artist  discovered another of her artwork reproduced on a second music album cover  produced by Prospect Records

UPDATE! Latest Update–this just in from artist Corrine Bayraktaroglu :
Marie,

My journey into copyright infringement is getting weirder– a wiki site mistakenly listed one of my spin paintings as being done by Damien Hirst and then I find a news article about a man arrested trying to sell fake Hirst paintings to Sotheby’s.

ps. I think my daughter has the spin art painting depicted in the news article hanging in her garage LOL.

Call for Submissions: Group Show and Art + Copyright Special Issue of InterARTive

OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS to group exhibition – deadline: 31st May. Selection Panel: Ben Vickers, Alana Kushnir, Helen Kaplinsky, and Ami Clarke.
We are asking for submissions of works that emanate from broadly speaking: artistic practice, as individuals or collectives, as well as other trans-disciplinary working arrangements, for a group exhibition to be held at Banner Repeater in June – August that consider the following:“When the structure that something takes influences the shape the content takes, and also the ways that people might approach that content and use it, and likewise, the content begins to affect the structure as well” (Sean Dockray of aaaaarg.org interviewed by Cornelia Sollfrank in Giving What You Don’t Have, Expanded Appropriation:http://vimeo.com/60377168), we can begin to understand the binding between humans and technology as a co-evolution.Of particular interest are new relations that come of issues regarding copyright, patents, trademarks, and the consequences of trade secrets, brought to the fore by digital media.“Intellectual property rights, at least for patents and copyrights, may be considered rights in ideal objects. Patents can be obtained only for “practical” applications of ideas, but not for more abstract or theoretical ideas.  Philosophical, mathematical or scientific truths cannot be protected under current law on the grounds that commerce and social intercourse would grind to a halt were every new phrase, philosophical truth, and the like, considered the exclusive property of its creator. But the distinction between creation and discovery is not clear-cut or rigorous.  Nor is it clear why such a distinction, even if clear, is ethically relevant in defining property rights. No one creates matter; they just manipulate and grapple with it according to physical laws. In this sense, no one really creates anything. They merely rearrange matter into new arrangements and patterns. An engineer who invents a new mousetrap has rearranged existing parts to provide a function not previously performed. Others who learn of this new arrangement can now also make an improved mousetrap. Yet the mousetrap merely follows laws of nature. The inventor did not invent the matter out of which the mousetrap is made, nor the facts and laws exploited to make it work.” (N. Stephan Kinsella – Against Intellectual Property (2008))

We are interested in works that consider how content might be shaped by structural form and vice versa, that appropriate images/objects, and structures beyond the object, that challenge or critique all, or any of the above ideas, that might address:

  • the means of production and systems of distribution,
  • legal structures with renew issues of copyright,
  • social media and the production of social relations,
  • institutional structures and educational systems,
  • structures of the gallery, art market, and beyond….
It is worth noting that all technologies, on, and offline, are of interest.We will be screening the new film from director Ben Lewis: Google and the World Brain:http://www.worldbrainthefilm.com/  “The most ambitious project ever conceived on the Internet: Google’s master plan to scan every book in the world and the people trying to stop them. Google says they are building a library for mankind, but some say they also have other intentions”, during the exhibition period.Other recent points of interest may be found here:

Fast and easy to get your own, here is my Countune.

In the About section of Countune Gerd Jansens explains his project, in part–”Why should a picture always belong to just one person? This picture belongs to everyone, so it brings people and ideas together. Countune is an “International Internet Social Art Project” and a registered Trademark. It is a new concept for exhibiting pictoral art. Its significance is rooted in an on-going graphic representation of the sequence of natural numbers.”
