Today there have been massive demonstrations all around EU against #article13 and other paragraphs in the coming new EU copyright reform directive. The parliament will vote about this in three days. This law will only help big publishers, labels and content dealers but not the artists. It is very annoying to be used as an excuse by lobby controlled politicians that ‘the poor artist’ needs to protected while this will break Internet culture on a large scale. Required uploadfilters will give even more power to Internet tech giants Google, FB etc. Culture is based on imitating, quoting and remixing, especially online! It is very likely that you wont be able to post your own art any more….

I ve been looking at these cheaply produced, super low resolution LED signs (the IRL animated gif 😉 for a while already.  End of last year I filmed this meaningfull pair in a kiosk window in Berlin and fell in love with them.  First I used the picture for the SPEED SHOW 5 title in Paris but I had to take it a bit further. 🙂 You find LED signs in any shopping window especially in EU these days. There are also many OPEN signs in US but hardly any INTERNET signs. I had to change that! 🙂
The OPEN INTERNET intervention was produced during my residency stay at EYEBEAM.
