Hunting for that ship

posted at 18:07 GMT by M.River in /news/mriver

Here is my CC art story of a project that seems to be somehow cursed.

The ship that I have been using for the project came from an image Joy tossed into the iCommonsair Pool Joy had been posting images of old ships from Croatia. I think she was considering using some of the images for an artwork. Last night, after posting the last image for my project, as I sat in bed, I thought “I bet that ship is not old and I bet it has a copyright on it…shit.

Here is the ship’s trail. The image was taken from Cao Fei’s blog Cao Fei is one of the iCommons Artist in Residence. Cao Fei seem to have got it from the Cape Farewell Project “Art and Climate Change” who picked it up from an artist named David Buckland

“David Buckland is a designer, artist and film-maker whose lens-based works have been exhibited in numerous galleries in London, Paris and New York and collected by the National Portrait Gallery, London, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, the Metropolitan Museum, New York and the Getty Collection, Los Angeles amongst others.”

So now, I’m going to email David Buckland to see if I can use his image for non-commercial project. This is, in the end, what CC is all about. Not doing what I’m doing.

I’ll update if I hear from him. permanent link to this post
