I'm currently working on my final project as part of my design degree, and was wondering if I could get some artist input?
I'm creating a social awareness campaign called "Draw the Line" - it aims to reduce the occurence of art/IP theft by emotively demonstrating the effects this has on artists - taking away their livelihood etc.
I'm just thinking, as I need to make this pretty deep (as well as effective) I should get cracking in terms of finding some opinions from real artists - if you can answer one, some, any of these following questions, it would be so much help to my campaign.
I'm not sure how I will use the responses - depending on how many I get and how I can use them, I will obviously make sure to get in touch with you in terms of using them for research/campaign quotes etc.
I have made a survey so you don't have to put your responses here for all to see/remain anonymous, but if you would like me to credit your responses/check in with you etc or want to provide more, such as potentially doing a video feature or something like that, please please please give me a way to contact you because that would be so much help and I would really like to make this campaign real so it can actually do something good rather than jazz up my portfolio. If you like, you can answer the questions on here, or note me if you like. It's up to you.
1. What is your name/account etc? (so I can find/contact you)
2. What sort of art do you create? What is your following like? Please give me an introduction to your practice, in as much detail as you like.
3. Do you follow/know any artists/are you an artist who has had their work/IP stolen?
4. How did it effect you/them? Did you/they lose money, the right to their work?
5. If the previous 2 questions apply, what work was it, and how was it stolen? Was it re-used, reproduced, traced? Please link to the original and stolen if possible.
6. Do you have anything you want potential thieves to know about how this effects you and the industry, and what you want to change?
6. Any other comments? www.surveymonkey.com/r/WJV2JSJ
And finally, if you don't know how to answer these questions/have already answered them/know someone who can, please share the link!
Thank you so much!!!
