art as information, information as art

While trying to find out which part of an animal a shank bone is and why it’s included in a Seder, I came across this photographer David Shankbone. His comment regarding the relationship between art and information struck me, and I appreciate his ideas on fair use. Also, have any of you heard the term copyleft before? It was new to me.
