Copyright Law


video for Negativland’s “Crosley Bendix discusses the Copyright Act”, 1992

When I first heard “Crosley Bendix discusses the Copyright Act”, Negativland, Seeland Records, 1992, I was so amazed with the work, I felt I had to give everyone the chance to hear it. and since it’s copyright free, I made a video for that sound work.
I used their technique – razor tape editing – and put together hundreds of scenes from videos and tv, sometimes ilustrating the words, so that people would feel attracted by the fast sequence of scenes and stay and hear Negativlands work.
This was the first time I’ve shown a video in an exhibition.
Editing was made with two VHS Pal video recorders.
Copyright law was made for the 20 000 minutos de arte no Técnico exhibition in October 1994.
