"Reflectionism" and "Diffusionism"
Pieces constructed to assert the principle of self-ownership (1993--1994).
Given society's utilitarianist tendency to put our "blood and sweat" ahead
of our "heart and soul," these pieces question the apparent notion that
copyrighted material (intentional works) should have more protection than
people and the data they give off (unintentional works). (a) Parody of the
classic "shrink wrap" software license agreement, placing restrictions on
those who might photograph the wearer (including restrictions when shirt is
removed, e.g. restrictions on use of hidden cameras in fitting rooms). (b)
Parody of software piracy poster put on back of T-shirt, including material
to which the author owns the copyright. (c) Parody of a "Say No! to software
piracy. If you don't own it, DON'T use it!" poster.|
