Copyright Atrophy

Copyright Atrophy
Antonio Roberts

Copyright Atrophy is a project that explores how much an artwork must be changed, remixed, mutated, or altered before it loses all of its associated meaning, context and, more importantly, copyright/trademark status.

The project was initially conceived in 2013 and subsequently exhibited online for Interartive and physically at Furtherfield Gallery. The online vesrion launched in 2014.

For this 2018 extension of the project new logos are added and displayed simultaneously in a slowly devolving animated collage.

By reducing these logos down to their simplest forms I question their significance in society in culture and reduce amount of power they have over our creativity.
