The Burning Question (2005)

The Burning Question is a participatory installation and internet radio broadcast. This project consists of customized computers, large color posters, and pamphlets examining Intellectual Property and copyright. Multiple computers are loaded with hundreds of works contributed by composers, musicians, and sound artists from around the world. Visitors are offered blank CD's and invited to freely burn copyleft music; as they make playlists, they collectively generate an Internet radio broadcast that streams 24 hours a day from the gallery for the duration of the exhibit. The gallery becomes an impromptu radio station and visitors become DJ's.
