Data as Culture - Art that uses data as a material
In Unauthorised Copy a golden 3D-rendered Mickey Mouse-style hand and an incomplete render of a bust of Queen Nefertiti revolve over a glitchy mashup of cartoon and digital imagery. Roberts is interested in issues around copying, plagiarising and authenticity. He asks how in the post-3D scanning world we might protect the rights held within original objects and images.
