2009 Net Art Programme: John Michael Boling - Art for George Lucas

LAUNCH COMMISSIONED ARTWORK

A marathon surfing session aims to turn up every possible manner of unauthorized Star Wars related cultural production that exists on the internet - fanart, fanfiction, amateur costume, remakes, tributes, remixs and mashups. In an antagonistic gesture towards George Lucas’ trigger-happy approach to pursuing even the most benign instances of copyright infringement, the collection touches on the ambiguity of fair use laws as well as visualizing the useless struggle any content owner faces in the networked world.

John Michael Boling (b. 1983, USA), is an artist and internet user living in Athens, GA. He was born in 1983 in Rome, GA. He is the creator of http://www.gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooogle.com/ and was a founding member of http://www.nastynets.com.
