Created by the first Eyebeam/Public Knowledge joint artist-in-residence! Elisa Kreisinger FRAMED! The attack on fair use and digital artists on the Internet:

Kianga Ellis Projects is pleased to present the first solo exhibition for Pop Culture Pirate, Elisa Kreisinger. Framed! The attack on fair use and digital artists on the Internet features Kreisinger’s videos Picasso Baby, I’m Feeling 22; Mad Men: Set Me Free (with Marc Faletti) and Mad Med: Don Loves Roger alongside her new Fair Use(r) series of paintings.

Provoked by her experience battling YouTube’s Content ID system, Framed! is a defiant gesture by Kreisinger to reassert her creative autonomy within a sympathetic art context. As conceptual artworks, the Fair Use(r) paintings point to how private agreements between copyright holders and hosting platforms undermine the safe guards for fair use built into the law and cripple creators’ rights to distribute digital art works online. The material physical presence of the paintings emphasizes the unique challenges facing artists working in the digital realm and presenting work on the Internet as compared to artists working in traditional media, such as oil on canvas, and presenting work in brick and mortar galleries.

Each of the paintings on view at the gallery, 1:18 Iconic TV, 0:01 Canal Plus, and 1:50 Lionsgate, depict the exact frame of the artist’s videos that triggered a potential copyright violation notice on YouTube. Once identified and flagged by YouTube, the work’s fate is in the hands of the claimants who are empowered to block, track or place ads over the artist’s original fair use art works.

Kreisinger recently examined fair use and artists’ rights online as an artist-in-residence at Eyebeam Art & Technology Center in partnership with Public Knowledge, the Washington, D.C.- based consumer rights organization involved in intellectual property law, choice in the digital marketplace, and an open Internet. She is a featured artist at the Eyebeam 2014 Annual Showcase from January 16 – February 1, 2014 on view at Eyebeam’s headquarters at 540 W. 21st Street, NY, NY 10011….

  1. The solution would be simple. Require a person to look and a CATCHPA for a takedown, and ban accounts from reporting after 6 false positives.
