Truth In Advertising: Guerrilla Art in Santa Cruz 1980-1985

"The photographs in this exhibit are of actual altered billboards that appeared on the streets of Santa Cruz, California from 1980 to 1985. The photographs have been adjusted for brightness, contrast, and parallax, but no content changes were made.

The billboards were made over by a clandestine network of midnight billboard editors operating under the name of Truth In Advertising, or TIA for short.

This exhibit of their historic work was first presented in 2007 at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History. The exhibit is made up of 12 billboards presented in the order in which they appeared on the streets of Santa Cruz. The sequence also tells the story of Truth in Advertising, and documents publicity and commentary."

(Bob Stayton)

Girl Talk's Gregg Gillis On Copyright, Curation and Making Mashups Rhyme

"When you listen to the recorded version of Girl Talk's music, it's hard not to get involved with the 'Name That Tune' game of it. ...

You might think that someone who uses other people's music so freely would disdain any notion of copyright, but Gillis, in fact, has a very balanced and contemporary viewpoint. 'I basically believe in that idea [of Fair Use], that if you create something out of pre-existing media, that's transformative, that's not negatively impacting the potential sales of the artist you're sampling, if it's not hurting them in some way, then you should be allowed to make your art and put it out there. I think, even in the years of doing this, the conversation has shifted a good bit.' Gillis has found himself a mashup artist in a mashup culture, and he no longer has to explain what he's doing or defend it. It is telling that no artist that has been sampled by Girl Talk has ever complained."

(Anthony Wing Kosner, 7 October 2012, Forbes)

Spot the Difference project on visual plagiarism

"Whilst there has been extensive research and guidance on the nature and issues surrounding text–based plagiarism in Further and Higher Education, there has been relatively little research undertaken on the topic of plagiarism in non–text based media. The Spot the Difference project seeks to address this gap and to undertake research on the meaning, nature, and issues surrounding the complex and nebulous concept of 'visual plagiarism', as well as to investigate the potential uses and relevance that visual search technology may have to offer in this area."

(Leigh Garrett, VADS, University for the Creative Arts)

The project is a collaboration between the Visual Arts Data Service (VADS) at the University for the Creative Arts and the Centre for Vision, Speech, and Signal Processing (CVSSP) at the University of Surrey. The project is funded through a JISC Learning & Teaching Innovation grant from June 2011 to May 2012.
