Artist Statement:


    63471 is the number of the copyright Yves Klein received for his IKB formula, a vivid blue color that keeps its intensity in powder form. In Blue/63471, Dogruel uses IKB as a starting point to question the concept of intellectual property and ownership of ideas. Copyright laws, patents and trademarks are there to protect the rights of creators and their ideas and processes. However, the same laws that protect these ideas simultaneously interrupt their integration back into dialogue and communal culture, interfering with the cycle of remix and re-appropriation. More and more abstract ideas, forms and colors are treated as immutable products, rather than building blocks and components.
