The Last Supper

Self-Made

The Internet is empowering the individual like never before. By democratizing the tools for production and distribution, the Web creates a culture of self-made artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers and craftspeople. With the rise of cloud-based software and the proliferation of cheap hardware, creative tools that were once prohibitively expensive — photo and video cameras, software for editing media, music recording and mixing equipment and publishing tools, etc. — are now freely available, lowering the barrier for entry for artists and the public-at-large and initiating in a new culture of amateur creators. The efforts of this “neo-creative class” are supported by networked communities where a peer-to-peer knowledge exchange and collaborative models create an infrastructure of distributed skill sets and community-led projects, thus fueling the rise of the self-made artist.??

The Blue Box Gallery installation at The Last Supper Festival aims to showcase artworks that are products of this self-made culture—from projects created with open-source software and collaborative works to works created with cloud-based and hacked software and hacked hardware.
