Flying Pho GIF[edit]

We added the following text, but I am unable to determine if I should still use the category "Own Work", or if there is a more accurate category for the Commons. Please let me know.

To create this new image Gorham and Giffen knocked out the background, added wings, changed colors, and created an animated gif to be used as a small part of an extensive art exhibition around themes of digital imagery, appropriation, open sourcing, and virtual space." Preceeding unsigned was by User:Scottygorham

Hi Scottygorham: If you do derivative works of other people's images, those people have to be credited in the source line of the file. Who is the Giffen? I see that your username includes Gorham, was this your work or the work of others? Please don't forget to sign four "tildes" (~~~~) to make it easier to write back to you! Cheers!

Flying Pho GIF #2[edit]

Chrysta Giffen is already listed as a co-creator. We are an artist team that operate individually and under my name as a brand. I will update the source to include where the original image was found in the appropriate line and leave the information also on the bottom. Scottygorham (talk) 03:18, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Scottygorham, with two creators, and one account it is probably a good idea to file an OTRS form for educational images created by more than one person. BTW, what is the educational purpose of a "flying pho?" Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 15:31, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Flying Pho GIF #3[edit]

Hey Ellen,

As mentioned before (and after the image) the GIF "is to be used as a small part of an extensive art exhibition around themes of digital imagery, appropriation, open sourcing, and virtual space." It will be debuting in a free art exhibit at the King Library in San Jose October 6th-December 17, 2014 in the second floor DiNapoli Gallery, the Atrium, and the 8th floor. It is an exhibit by artist Scotty Gorham, who as mentioned before produces work individually or as a team under a brand name. The concept of the artist as a brand has been around for centuries, ranging from the apprentice studio model of the Renaissance (including masters like Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Raphael) to more contemporary canonized and internationally recognized artists like Jeff Koons, Ai Wei Wei, Takashi Murakami, and Maurizio Cattelan. If you are based in Silicon Valley and would like to stop by and see the show, I would be happy to meet you and discuss in detail the complex themes of this sculpture, installation, and digital media art show that hopefully become more clear when the show is viewed in its totality. The GIF is art. Thanks.Scottygorham (talk) 19:13, 13 September 2014 (UTC)


It would still be best if you filed an OTRS form on all common work, provide all sources for work and explain in the description the educational purpose for the image. So far it sounds like a promotional image for your show, no? Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:56, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
