Recycled TV

Ben Hanbury‘ Recycled TV explores the ever changing copyright laws and Creative Commons.

The video installation takes two groups of video clips: first one is licenced under the Creative Commons, the other is copyrighted but is old enough that it would be in the public domain if the terms of copyright had not been extended so many times.


The videos are broken down into very short clips which are used to form beats in various audio tracks. The user can use a retro tv interface to mix between tracks thereby forming a new creative product out of old ones, however the user will also have to make choices of balance and fair use between public domain and copyrighted material.
