.-_-. would appreciate it if you would like to appropriate the work of .-_-. and .-_-. is willing to give you one of this original unlimited multiple work of art as a gift, so that you can appropriate it_
.libre canvas_ is not only “free as in free speech” but also free “as in free beer”_
.throughout modern art, artists made many works of/on canvases in many different contexts. this idea of "playing" with the canvas, the classical medium of painting, has also been very popular in contemporary art. .libre canvas_ is just another of them_
.libre canvas_ is an “original” work of art by .-_-. . it encourages you to appropriate it. that’s the only reason for its existance. .-_-. appreciates it if you find the work of .-_-. inspiring and would like to appropriate and build on it, as the way culture is built_
.all the works of .-_-. are free/libre and .copyleft!_. so is .libre canvas_ . works of art that are in digital format, represented as information can be reproduced and distributed easily in unlimited numbers with a very low marginal cost. works of art in the form of objects can only be reproduced in limited numbers because of technical and economical limitations of both the manual and the mechanical reproduction involved in the reproduction of objects_
.this work of art in the form of an object, which is a multiple, has a marginal cost for its reproduction that .-_-. has to bear. but .-_-. is willing to cover the cost of reproducing .libre canvas_ as gift for anyone who wants to have it for appropriating it. because, as an artist, .-_-. appreciates it if you find the work of .-_-. inspiring to build on it by appropriating.
the distributed identity .-_-. was craeated by peers of free culture at httpdot.net collectively and has been appropriated by many of them anonymously until the exhibition of .intuition3.0: totally dematerialized, zero-byte work of art_ by .-_-. at the 13th İstanbul Biennial on september 2013.
peers of free culture at httpdot.net do not appropriate the distributed identity .-_-. anymore but you are most welcome to.
