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 Sun, 04 Jun 2017 12:26:52 +1000 This Unruly a repository of video cut-ups clips and literature reviews This Unruly is an evolving web repository of theory and practice related to recombinatory video appropriation practices involving video re-purposing re-mixing collage and cut-up techniques The site includes examples of YouTube clips as well as a literature review of articles and academic papers which relate to the subject Content within the site has been organised using a provisional taxonomy that centres on formal aesthetic creative and experimental features In doing so this marks a departure from more conventional approaches which generally seek to locate works according to established art historical developments and stylistic conventions The site which was created by Simon Perkins is an extension to posts about the practice of video cut-ups that were initially made to the Folksonomy co in 2016 Tue, 11 Apr 2017 15:31:35 +1000 Silent-era avant-garde artist-filmmakers disrupting the new realities of mass media rather than replicating them Around the time Shub started her documentary experiments 20th century avant-garde artists likewise began using repurposed chunks of mass-produced ephemera Picasso and Braque threw bits of newspaper into paintings Max Ernst cut up Victorian illustrations to create proto-surrealist collages Walter Benjamin T S Eliot and James Joyce pushed the literary practice of quotation into the realm of pastiche Marcel Duchamp pioneered sculptural assemblage with his readymades and photomontage blossomed in the graphic works of John Heartfield Hannah H ouml ch and Alexander Rodchenko These works rearranged reality to suit their artists purposes but unlike the compilation films did not try to hide that manipulation Whether Cubist Dada or Constructivist these artists chose to disrupt the new realities of mass media rather than replicate them savoring the illogic of dreamlike disjunctions and precipitating new ways to see all-too-common images Ed Halter 10

machine Download Finished was an online ressource which transformed and re-published films from P2P networks and online archives Found footage became the rough material for the transformation machine which translated the underlying data structure of the films onto the surface of the screen The original images dissolved into pixels thus making the hidden data structure visible Through Download Finished file sharers became authors by re-interpreting their most beloved films Download Finished questions the relationship between the original and its copy in a digital environment It deals with questions arising from the cultural practice of file sharing and the breakages and voids it makes evident within the copyright system Mediengruppe Bitnik Thu, 24 Nov 2016 12:28:56 +1000 When Nigel Farage met Donald Trump Thu, 17 Nov 2016 23:21:23 +1000 The vaporwave aesthetic and the music playing behind an infomercial for public access purgatory Vaporwave isn rsquo t just something you listen to either it rsquo s something you experience and experiences include visuals Vaporwave visual art simply referred to as aesthetics is varied but tends to honor some core tenets If you rsquo re looking at something pink and teal with a marble classical bust and a glitchy Windows 95 logo you rsquo re probably looking at a vaporwave aesthetic If you rsquo re watching a YouTube video with a title written in a weirdly soothing stretched out font you rsquo re probably watching a vaporwave aesthetic If you haven rsquo t guessed by now vaporwave is a bit of a joke or more accurately an internet meme Vaporwave rsquo s trippy immediate artistic ancestor seapunk was a running inside joke on Tumblr during 2011 about fashion and art and music inspired by the ocean The look and sound of a psychedelic club run by a hipster Ariel from The Little Mermaid is a pretty accurate summation Neon seapunk imagery even found its way into Rihanna rsquo s 2012 Saturday Night Live performance confounding many viewers with its colorful and stylish but garish cheap and seemingly unprofessional grainy green screen look The exact difference between seapunk and vaporwave is blurry but as far as I understand vaporwave trades the aquatic focus for a fascination with the emptiness of aging and or amateur glossy commercialism It rsquo s the music playing behind an infomercial for public access purgatory Jordan Minor 03 June 2016 Wed, 09 Nov 2016 16:38:24 +1000 John Stezaker Resonating Nostalgic Lyricism In an image-saturated world British collage artist John Stezaker rather creates more

debate was characterised by levels of vitriol never before seen on the US political stage But while millions of viewers across the world watched in horror as the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton bloodied themselves over the Trump tapes Clinton emails tax Syria and Obamacare others saw the opportunity for humour Enter the memes The combination of microphones and roaming candidates aided by the
