KANSAS CITY.- Electromediascope, the popular experimental film, video and new-media series at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, focuses on the Internet for its fall series Opening Networks. The effects of Internet technologies and usage on artistic expression, art economics and art authorship will be examined. Three programs in September will feature two visiting artists and several film presentations.

Artists Mark Daggett and Jon Phillips will introduce their own work and address other digital media projects. Daggett works with software design and social software. His presentation will show how networks and social software are reshaping attributes of community. Phillips works with the open source code movement and Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization devoted to creating an alternative to existing copyright laws by providing free tools that let authors, scientists, artists and educators easily mark their creative work with the freedoms of use they want it to carry.

Films and works of art streamed from the Internet will be featured on the final program.

All presentations are in the Museum’s Atkins Auditorium and free, but reservations are recommended. Call 816.751.1ART (1278) or visit

Sept. 12, 7 p.m., Visiting Artist Mark Daggett

Sept. 19, 7 p.m., Visiting Artist Jon Phillips
