Kingdom of Piracy - BURN

Kingdom of Piracy (Armin Medosch, Shu Lea Cheang and Yukiko Shikata) also present BURN, a new site-specific installation and filesharing interface that responds to an incident where the Chinese government burnt thousands of bootlegged CDs. The BURN webserver will be transformed into an archive of public domain MP3s, made available to download and burn to CD. In the FACT Media Lounge, thousands of CDs are piled up and a CD BURNing station is set up so that the audience can burn their own CDs, pack them with colour-coded music files and take them home. BURN puts a spotlight on the raw act of duplication.
