Interactive Exhibit design
exploring the subject of copyright law and fair use
this is a new piece
on the subject of copyright law and fair use.
As far as the piece, I'll explain it just a bit because my
process can be understood as the ﬂip-side of the curated
subject matter witch is "Fair Use".
I used a photograph of!!Iconic Pop star Lady Gaga!taken by
the great Artist Bart Hess . Then I wrote a software patch
that takes algorithms from Madonnas song Vogue (used for
free via Pandora.com) and then used the amplitude as an
information input to create digital distortions along to the
music in real time.
I then recorded those distortion animations and saved them
as .mov ﬁles , turning the still image into a movie. I went
through the still frames of the movie and selected one. I
then made plastic layers of digital prints and paintings with
dye based pigments and alcohol. framed it and backlit it.
The piece is titled:
In the first video you will see the finished piece. The second video shows the digital processing being made

The viewer not only becomes part of the creation process but part of the artwork as well. Again, the traditional relationship between the object and the observer is questioned and re-examined.
