Abstract

The Pixel as Property is an examination of graphic design as a mode of production and its relations to three subjects: copyright, representation and ownership. My major research project in the Graphic Design program at OCAD U involved the investigation of these three topics through the activity of graphic design production. The first subject, copyright, was the catalyst for most of my formal work over the year.

As a property relation, copyright is unique because it is treated as a default. As soon as a work is created and fixed in a tangible form it is automatically copyrighted. The ubiquity of copyright, as a status that is frequently overlooked or taken for granted, warrants greater scrutiny and attention.
