PBS Off Book: How the Internet is Creating New Possibilities for Artists Online Video

The PBS Off Book series looks at how artists innovate within the confines of experimental media. In this insightful new episode, PBS explores how the internet’s facilitation of crowdsourcing birthed Kickstarter and forever changed traditional funding models. It also looks at new forms of expressing ownership to accommodate for a rising ‘remix culture,’ à-la YouTube. Both of these examples illustrate the dramatic shift in how art is experienced from the perspectives of the artist, and the audience — both, at the hands of the internet. The short features input from Co-Founder of Kickstarter Yancey Strickler and Lawrence Lessig, Co-Founder of Creative Commons.
