Open Source Art. What is open source art and why is it important? How do the economics and participation of open source art work and why does it matter? Who is doing interesting work in open source today, and what are they making? In this conversation, our panelists are creators of open source movements and users of open source software. They discuss different types of open source art, from programming languages and electronics platforms to software art whose code itself is open sourced, and follow the impact of several different systems since their inception. Confirmed panelists: Scott Draves, Stefanie Wuschitz, Evelyn Eastmond and Lauren McCarthy, Anton Marini.
