An example of Ms Takahashi's installation art, from the Norwich Gallery

Ananova reports that an exhibit entitled My Play-Station, by Japanese artist Tomoko Takahashi, has been put on display at London's Serpentine Gallery. This exhibit features 7,600 pieces of junk,including old washing machines, broken toys and a rusty muck-spreader. Curator Rochelle Steiner said:
"This show is giving these objects another use. Games come with rules, and she's really interested in how with rules comes order, how you break out of order, and the relationship between order and disorder."
The IPKat likes the idea of defining an artwork in terms of rules that establish order: this is a very lawyer-ish thing to do. But Merpel asks, what about the rules of copyright? Do they apply here too?

The IPKat likes Gavin Turk's rubbish best: he keeps it tidier ...

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
