Giuseppe Licari has turned the Italian countryside into a trademarked piece of art, with 'Registered: the Landscape as Object.' The artwork questions who owns this piece of land, considering the area was completely rebuilt and reorganized during the Renaissance period.
Registered: the Landscape as Object also makes one think about whether or not the beauty and harmony of a piece of land can be owned with a piece of paper. If so, then whose to stop people from putting trademarks all over the earth. However, if this was to happen quite a few individuals would be outraged with the damage that could be done.
Giuseppe Licari manages to make a poignant statement about ownership and the commercial exploitation that can take place in modern society.
