Open Sauce celebrates the way that sexuality blurs the boundaries between one person's inner life and another. It playfully questions the notion of 'plagiarism' and embraces the erotics of cross-fertilisation, blending and borrowing.

What is Open Source?
Open Sauce plays on the term 'open source'. An open source work is one that you are free to look at, copy and re-mix with few or no legal restrictions. Most commonly associated with software, the idea of waiving copyright restrictions is becoming increasingly popular in writing, music and the arts. UK copyright law is extremely restrictive, automatically protecting every new work that is made. Open Sauce aims to highlight the problems with this approach. Not only new artworks, but our very thoughts and fantasies are drawn from the material all around us.
