Single Channel Video Installation. A grid of white letters appears on a dark screen and change as a group to a steady beat. Certain characters freeze and turn green until the group of white letters is eventually replaced with a fixed green phrase. This grid of letters mimics the changing board of an old fashion train station schedule. Over time, these seemingly random groupings of letters spell out names of patented inventions. Hence, the title: "IP" is short for "intellectual property." (A) DVD (B) Archival copy tal Betacam video tape

Provenance: Artwork came directly from artist and dealer. This work represents an early period in the artist's development. While he is primarily known for creating narrative-based tal recreations of iconic cultural and social history, IP by contrast is abstract and more conceptual (Rene de Guzman).
