Our own Jessica was recently in New York to take in the Print/Out show at the Museum of Modern Art. She came back raving about the Danish art collective Superflex's contribution Copy Light Factory, which features prints of famous lamp designs transposed onto simple, square light boxes.
The idea is meant to be a comment on the current system of copyright — who owns design and when does a copy of copy becoe something new in it's own right? The show is part workshop — team Superflex teaches gallery goers how to make their own light — and part installation, with the space slowly filling up with these illuminated lanterns.
In short, it's fun, it's thought-provoking and it's pretty. We'd also be lying if we said we hadn't thought of copying Superflex's copies. If you find yourself in New York City before May 14th, you should totally check this show out. It's an interesting survey of MoMA's print collection and also features provocative work by Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei and the late German conceptualist Martin Kippenberger (among others).
