Can you own light? More pointedly: can you own a color? Recent highly publicized legal cases regarding the intellectual property rights for shades of red, brown, and "the blackest black" suggest that there is nothing so ephemeral that it cannot be claimed for exclusive use. Artist Ebony M. Burton shows the historicity of this problem with Ultramarine, her new public sculpture project. In the Middle Ages, ground lapis lazuli stone was essential to ultramarine, a color so highly valued that it was reserved for painting regal and religious figures. Using a combination of new and reclaimed materials, Ultramarine's abstract figures, presented with accompanying soundscape by composer Jeff Aaron Bryant, explore value and accessibility, reappropriating vision through a contemplation on this rarified shade of blue.
