I place my art in the public domain.
I am happy for you to copy, display, and use my work in any way, and you are welcome to create derivative works from my images, words, and videos. I would love it if you gave me credit when you use my art.
If you’re interested in my portrait work, please be aware that the subjects have a say in how their likenesses are used. To contact one of them in order to obtain permission for a project involving a portrait, email me.
I am passionate about building a world where artists and creativity both thrive, and, as far as I can tell, that’s a world without copyright. If you’re interested in learning more about why viewing cultural expression as intellectual property is problematic, I would recommend:
- this documentary which features many important free culture advocates.
- this book by the inventor of Creative Commons, Lawrence Lessig.
Last April, I spoke at TEDxGeneva about the role of imitation in creativity, and this is the video of the talk. More recently, I released a book that digs deeper into the ideas addressed in the talk. You Share Good is an excellent resource for artists who are curious about why and how to uncopyright their art.
