How might the open source system of sharing and collective narrative be a creative inspiration and useful approach for your work as an artist or designer?
In “The Way of Open Source” from Open Source Studio(2015) by Randall Packer, it acknowledges the list below as to what creative inspiration should come from in the concept of open source:
Peer-to-peer methods of collaboration
In that nature of creative inspiration, the open source system will enable me to find out more about ideas that have been proposed or realised that are similar to what i would want to do. This will help me to know a process that could help me achieve the goal that i would like to set for myself. Furthermore, it could also enable me possibly communicate with other artists of similar goals to not only build myself up in that concept but also bounce ideas off one another to hopefully bring our ideas to greater heights.
In the Open Source Studio (OSS), we are not only able to connect with our current classmates, but we are also able to access the works and process of previous batches and also other classes (as seen from the screenshots).
With the tags system, we are able to find students with common interest and able to tap into their experiences to help us move forward with our ideas. And if possible, allow us to find the person to further discuss with them about our common ideas.
