Interviews key figures in the debate, including Gregg Gillis, the Pittsburgh biomedical engineer who moonlights as Girl Talk, a mash-up artist rearranging the pop chart's DNA with his incongruous, entirely sample-based songs. A mash-up in itself, this shatters the wall between users and producers, and challenges the thresholds of 'fair use.'

Aboriginal architecture, living architecture( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aboriginal architecture living architecture offers a fascinating in-depth look into the diversity of North American Native architecture. Featuring expert commentary and stunning imagery, this program provides a virtual tour of seven aboriginal communities-- Pueblo, Mohawk, Inuite, Crow, Navajo, Coast Salish, and Haida-- revealing how each is actively reinterpreting and adapting traditional forms for contemporary purposes. Everyone is familiar with certain types of Aboriginal architecture. Traditional igloos and teepees are two of the most enduring symbols of North America itself. But how much do we really know about the types of structures Native Peoples designed, engineered, and built? For more than three hundred years, Native communities in North America have had virtually no indigenous architecture. Communities have made do with low cost government housing and community projects designed by strangers in far-away places. Thankfully, across the continent, political, financial, and cultural changes have created a renaissance of Native design. Mordern Aboriginal architects are turning to ancient forms, adapting them in response to changes in the natural and social environment, and creating contemporary structures that hearken to the past. Employing old and new materials and techniques, and with an emphasis on harmony and balance, Native designers are successfully melding current community needs with tradition. The resulting buildings are testaments to the enduring strength and ingenuity of Aboriginal design

"Headstrong Ayan, a refugee from Somalia, has big dreams. New to Canada, she'll show anyone she can provide for her family. Still, it's difficult to keep it all together. On top of the soaring rent, her daughters, 16-year-old Nasrah and 13-year-old Leila, need braces. And even working two jobs as a cleaner, it's tough to find enough money to send to her anxious husband and two sons still stuck in East Africa. Ayan's confidence is shaken when she is unexpectedly evicted for late payment of rent. It is the beginning of the summer break from school, and the city faces a severe housing shortage. Ayan and her daughters are exiled to the city's tattered hinterland among other homeless families, hookers and unsettled souls. A vibrant and contemporary feature drama fired by a trio of remarkable debut performances, Family Motel charts one eventful summer in the lives of Ayan and her girls as they confront life on the edge. Finding inspiration in the alternative dramas pioneered at the National Film Board of Canada as well as community-based storytelling, director Helen Klodawsky and her collaborators deftly fashion a fresh and authentic tale of falling through the cracks in a land of plenty - and a stirring portrait of dignity under fire."--Container
