For Hard Copy, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez produced four 3D prints of popular cultural icons, remixed and distorted in a computer modelling program, alongside the sculpturesā€™ translations into .png image files. The polyamide figures suggest the strange futures of these familiar cartoons ā€“ whose images are reproduced widely on file-sharing sites ā€“ and stand as emblems for questions of copyright and participatory internet culture. Ā  The iconic outline of Mickey Mouse continues to be protected by Disney under the Copyright Extension Act despite being almost a century old. Every Mickey superimposes every 3D file of Mickey Mouse that Plummer-Fernandez could find online.
