Shareable Readymades defines this moment in digital culture and art history. Myers takes three iconic ‘readymades’ from the 20th century art canon and transforms their value once again. By creating a downloadable, freely licensed 3D model to print and remix, everyone can now have their own Pipe, Balloon Dog and Urinal, a conceptual digital artwork available on demand.

Combining Free and Open Source culture with a new perspective on the idea of original and copyrighted artworks, Myers explores ideas about owning art and consumerism, alongside the way the Internet changes our relationship to production and sharing.

We are offering a special edition range of Shareable Readymades available to buy, supplied with Certificate of Inauthenticity, signed by the artist. Profits from sales of Shareable Readymades will be shared between the artist and Furtherfield. By purchasing a Shareable Readymade, not only do you collect an era-defining artwork, you also make a valuable investment in building a more resilient future arts economy through the Art Data Money programme.

Myers' Balloon Dog from the Shareable Readymades series was first commissioned by Furtherfield in 2011 and selected to represent digital innovation in the arts by Arts Council England in the same year.
