This is a screenshot image of a Martin Beebe photograph from the 1970s. Robert Rauschenberg and Beebe were involved in litigation over Rauschenberg's use of this photo in one of his works; the suit eventually settled out of court. I'm currently working on concepts related to copyright infringement and the legal doctrine of Fair Use. With Richard Prince's controversial "borrowed" works in the news lately, it is so fascinating to determine how much a work must be changed to be eligible for protection under Fair Use. How much more do I need to use my computer to distort Beebe's photograph to make it my own four decades after it was taken?
