Open Wide: Answering the Anxiety of "The Author" in Open Licensing

Current research

Open Wide is an ongoing research project into art, authorship and open licensing. I'm exploring what it means to be constructed as a an attributable 'author' by copyright law and artistic practice. What ideas about selfhood are at work here, and what is so scary about letting go of control over our work - whether we hang on with an 'all rights reserved' license or maintain authorship through an open licensing scheme?
