Public Knowledge and Eyebeam are thrilled to announce the inaugural recipient of this first-of-its kind joint residency program: Elisa Kreisinger! Elisa will participate in an initial 2-week orientation and familiarization process at Public Knowledge's Washington, D.C. offices and then work at Eyebeam, with our community, facilities and equipment, to produce a new work that will have a clear relationship to both organizations’ shared issue areas.

Public Knowledge is a public interest advocacy organization in Washington, DC that seeks to ensure that copyright law and communications policy promote creativity, free speech, and democratic values.


Elisa Kreisinger is a Brooklyn-based pop culture hacker. Her work includes remixing Mad Men into feminists and The Real Housewives into lesbians. Elisa's 2012 US Copyright Office testimony helped win crucial exemptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, decriminalizing DVD ripping for artistic statements. She is a contributor to the forthcoming books, The Book of Jezebel and The Routledge Companion to Remix Studies both due out this year. Elisa speaks around the world on the power of remix and remaking pop culture.
