Sam Muirhead

Camera Libre
Activist, Artist, Animator
I'm an animator and activist working to push the collaborative, transparent, and ethical ideas of the Free/Libre Open Source movement into wider society - with a particular focus on the arts.

In 2012 I lived an experimental 'Year of Open Source' (http://yearofopensource.net), applying the concept to every aspect of my life, from furniture, to music, even to underwear.

Since then I've helped kickstart a global network around the idea of an Open Source Circular Economy (https://oscedays.org), made Free Culture videos and animations, about Open Everything, using Free Software (http://cameralibre.cc). including the POC21 documentary (http://cameralibre.cc/POC21) on open source hardware for sustainability. Since 2016 I've been developing a practice for co-creating and customizing open source animation, and running workshops that give non-coders an experience of open source collaboration, without using digital tools: Cut, Copy & Paste (http://www.cameralibre.cc/cut-copy-and-paste)
