Exposure: From Friction to Freedom Book

In 2003 Aula invited a group of artists, pundits and entrepreneurs to Helsinki to discuss the future of media, copyright, and privacy in a world where life is routinely captured and published in digital form. Collected in this volume are the discussions along with selected essays.

At the heart of the book is the idea that there is one and the same phenomenon at work as different areas of culture start flowing in digital networks, be they music or gaming, journalism or personal media. We have called this phenomenon exposure. It is a broad shift from a world of friction and control of information to a world of freedom to create and distribute information.

Cultural creations want to be free, they want to change, they have to keep moving to stay alive.

Thanks to Preoccupations for the steer on this one.
