Ben White hasn't posted anything else onto the blog as yet.

Some projects are sensitive, some have copyright restrictions, others are not suitable for the web. Perhaps this is why there is little listed here from Ben White

I am an artist and researcher working at the intersection of art, music and information networks. My current practice/research is concerned with interrogating established mechanisms for the authorship, ownership and distribution of art and culture. Principally this is through exploring alternative networks of collaborative production and free distribution that deploy copyleft, Free/Libre and Open Source software models ported from computer programming. Since 2005 I have collaborated on the ongoing project Open Music Archive – established to identify, digitise and distribute out-of-copyright archive music recordings and film material and to act a vehicle for collaborative projects exploring the material’s potential for reuse. The projects loop back to the beginnings of the recording industry as contemporary models of peer-to-peer distribution and collaborative production are problematizing established notions around the authorship, ownership and distribution of culture. Recent projects include include ATL 2067 for Flux Night Atlanta (2013), Open House: Divided Estates at Casa Luis Barragán Mexico City (2012), The Brilliant and the Dark at VBKÖ Vienna (2012) and Women's Library London (2010), Song Division at Camden Arts Centre (2011), Struggle in Jerash at Gasworks London / Makan Amman (2010), Parallel Anthology at the 17th Biennale of Sydney (2010), Free-to-air at ICA London (2008) and Cornerhouse Manchester (2007).
