How about those plastic window things that companies
stick on packages these days to contain invoices? You
could stick them to the cans?

I'm not sure that's true. It seems like people do try
and do things as far as they can but that sometimes
they might lack the knowledge about what's bad, (such
as putting paper documentation in the cans). Where
things are easy to do I think artists are quite keen
to do them.

I think people do what they can but ultimately film
and video are mediums that degrade quite quickly.
