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 use of 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.
- my book about why I put my art in the public domain.
In 2014, I spoke at TEDxGeneva about the role of imitation in creativity and about how copyright is as much a paradigm as it is a law. This is the video of the talk.
