Gavin Artz links democratic ideals, with entrepreneurial business, culture, innovation, art and community creativity at TEDx Adelaide 2011. Gavin brings together a number of ideas that appear in his articles and research by using the common thread of 3D printing technologies.
Gavin Artz was interviewed on ANAT’s art/science projects, embeding culture in the built enviroment and his role on the Festival of Unpopular Cultre’s arts funding panel presentation.
For a pod cast of the interview go to Radio Adelaide:
It was a long, rewarding and interesting day. On the 6th of October Gavin Artz was asked to give his views on the future of the arts and its relationship to digital culture. Entitled “Leadership and Responsibility” Gavin covered art, technology, research, industrial processes and education. Senator Kate Lundy and Pia Waugh put in an enormous effort to be inclusive and democratic in the best possible sense. It is worth hearing all the contributions, but Gavin Artz presentation starts at 30 minutes with an impromptu feedback spot as a bonus for those seeing the whole video.
The Office of Senator Kate Lundy in collaboration with the Office of Minister Simon Crean is running a Digital Culture Public Sphere consultation to look specifically at the digital arts and industries as well as opportunities for cultural institutions around digitisation, public engagement and collaboration. http://www.katelundy.com.au/2011/09/06/the-digital-culture-public-sphere

Last week, with some guilt, I went to Borders in the CBD to by a book. Guilty for picking over the bones of a dying business, guilty as the staff talked about their unknown futures. I was after a book that had been a business best seller for the last 6 years. Unexpectedly Borders had what I wanted on their shelves. I am so used to retail stores not having something in stock that my initial bad feeling left me and I got excited by the large 40% off tickets, I found my book and looked to the back for the price, calculated the discount and then it struck me, the deep problem that retail is facing.

We “like” Facebook, growing numbers of us are communicating across this platform and other social media platforms. We are aligning ourselves with many causes, as well as devoting more of our spare time contributing to and working for these causes, but we don’t expect an AGM, or a board. Citizens are voting with their feet in acts of self-organised co-creation, they are looking for platforms, not programs. More >

“The future has already arrived. It’s just not evenly distributed yet.” William Gibson
This quote reflects what it is like to view the world through the work of ANAT, where we assist creative practitioners to develop the new ground where art, science, technology, culture, community and commerce meet in harmony. Looking back over six years of Filter Magazine you can see how creative practitioners working with science and technology not only foretell what will be the significant themes of research, but how we will be engaging with it culturally.

“if I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses”
- Henry Ford.
Commercialisation of intellectual property by creative practitioners has gone mostly unnoticed by the mainstream economy. Artsactive have a small catalogue of patents that have been derived from creative practice, but as a standard revenue stream it is poorly explored. At the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT) we work with artists who are at the very forefront of science and emerging technology. It was noticed that through the processes encouraged by ANAT, artists were creating intellectual property when they encountered a technical roadblock in their work. They created code, machinery or processes in their endeavours to over come problems in achieving their creative vision. These AncillaryIPs (Artz 2008) had been mostly overlooked More >

“In all affairs it’s a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.” – Bertrand Russell
The price of technology has fallen, often to nothing, as access to technology and technological know how has exploded. Whole open source industries offer easy to use, powerful, creative tools that build digital communities of shared creative meaning. There is a digital culture that creates and distributes online, that reflects on the world and represents it to a community ready to digest. More >
