    • appropriation
    • 100 years ago, F.T. Marinetti wrote: “Heap up the fire to the shelves of the libraries! Divert the canals to flood the cellars of the museums! Let the glorious canvases swim ashore! Take the picks and hammers!”
    • “Pigmaei gigantum humeris impositi plusquam ipsi gigantes vident”
    • “Pigmaei gigantum humeris impositi plusquam ipsi gigantes vident” --Isaac Newton, quoting John of Salisbury, quoting Bernard of Chartres, quoting Greek mythology
    • there is no such thing as ex nihilo creativity, every object requires cultural references, or we would be unable to recognize it Constructivism: humans construct knowledge and meaning from their experiences

    • Bruce Connor (1933 - 2008)
    • quot;Bruce was firmly opposed to display of his films on-line, and on his behalf as an attorney I made numerous requests for removal. Now that Bruce has died, all copyrights are now held by Jean Conner (Bruce's wife), and she has explicitly directed that I request and otherwise take action to have all on-line postings of Bruce Conner movies removed immediately.quot;

    • Carlo Zanni - Self Portrait With Dog
    • Robin Hewlett & Ben Kinsley - Street With a View
    • “Neighbors and passers-by noticed the commotion and got in on the action, devising their own, unplanned scenarios. By intervening in our intervention, these unrehearsed actors helped blur the line between reality and fiction even further!”
    • YouTube remix
    • Justin Kemp - New Media Cowboy
    • Mark Charles Brown - Erasing Dreamland
    • Paul Miller, a.k.a. DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid - Bush Remix
    • 20th century avant-garde sought to reintegrate art into the practice of life. However, art and life did not share a common language, nor did they share a common space. Where avant-garde failed, YouTube and Google succeeded.
    • “Our culture no longer bothers to use words like appropriation or borrowing to describe those very activities. Today's audience isn't listening at all - it's participating. Indeed, audience is as antique a term as record, the one archaically passive, the other archaically physical. The record, not the remix, is the anomaly today. The remix is the very nature of the digital.” --William Gibson
