My essay “To Open […] To Collect […] To Expand […] To Continue: Richard Serra’s Verb List, Post-Internet Appropriation, and the Culture of the Use of Forms” has just been published in the latest edition of Pool. The essay looks at the tension between the culture of use signaled by the internet and the culture of ownership embedded in the clearance culture of restrictive copyright law through a comparison with and reinterpretation of Richard Serra’s 1967-1968 verb list.
Pool is a platform dedicated to expanding and improving the discourse between online and offline realities and their cultural, societal and political impact on each other.
A PDF of the essay can be downloaded here, or on the Pool site.
