Eric Doeringer                   

The law is invisible yet all-encompassing -- it shapes our society and dictates the way we lead our daily lives.  Although few would advocated fro a lawless society, we all break the law from time to time - driving over the speed limit, using illicit drugs, burning a copy of a friend's CD, or parking in a no-parking zone.

Laws are necessary to maintain order but invariably come at the expense of personal freedom.  This conflict is particularly evident in the arts, where freedom of expression often clashes with the law.  In our supposedly free society, numerous musicians have been sued fro sampling a few seconds of music without permission; visual artists such as J.S.G. Boggs, Gregrory Green, Tom Sachs, and Steve Kurtz (or their dealers) have been arrested for making artwork that runs afoul of the law; and corporations like Disney and Mattel sic their lawyers on anyone who creates an artwork or video using a copyrighted character.

However, legal definitions of "obscenity", "fair use" and "community standards" are notoriously vague and the rise of digital technology has created a whole new set of legal quandaries.  It is these "gray areas" of the law (and the "shadow economy" that has sprung up to exploit them) which interest me.  By operating within the gray areas, I hope to draw attention to the paradoxes inherent in our legal system and cause viewers to question the boundaries drawn between the law and free expression.
