The basis for this project is intellectual property, which I seek to engage with as a material to be used as any other.

The IP in question is taken as a set of negotiated guidelines within which physical works may be produced, but also as a set of norms to be deviated from.

These stipulations are negotiated through legal counsel and manifest in each case in a unique contract between myself and the IP holder.
