Eric Reiffstecks's After-School Atelier high school class Viewership, Authorship, Ownership was an investigation of ownership in both literal and conceptual terms. Students explored re-appropriation of media entertainment to build a sense of self through media self-portraits, and were made aware of timely and relevant issues of copyright and borrowing media.... in the end, your self-portrait may not be your own.
