A panel discussion organized by San Francisco-based

achieve a viable practical framework for common land
in the 21st century.

with

*Keith Aoki*, UC Oregon law professor and co-author
of, among other works, the comic book 'Bound By Law -
Tales From the Public Domain'.

*Iain Boal*, Director of the Environmental Politics
Colloquium at the Institute of International Studies,
UC Berkeley, and co-editor of the recent book
'Afflicted Powers'.

*Ramon Sender*, writer, activist and participant in

Amy Balkin's art practice combines cross-disciplinary
research and social critique with a search for
unrealized possibilities outside conventional systems.
Her ongoing project This is the Public Domain
(http://www.thisisthepublicdomain.org) is an effort to create
a permanent international commons from 2.5 acres of
land purchased near Tehachapi, California.

Balkin has organised a public conversation between
artists, legal experts, and people who have been
engaged personally and politically with open land and
commoning, exploring the search for a real-world
framework for —with the aim of proposing a solution
that the artist will then implement.

Balkin's recent projects include Invisible-5, a
collaborative environmental justice audio tour of the
I-5 corridor between San Francisco and Los Angeles,
and Public Smog (http://www.publicsmog.org).
