I spent the last weekend in sydney for a forum run by artlink magazine. The forum was interesting, covering topics such as the changing climates of arts publishing, issues to do with copyright and freedom of expression. As an artist who appropriates much of my imagery from random sources it was interesting to hear other artists perspectives on the topic aswell as what the lawyers had to say. It was fascinating to see the ways in which many contemporary video artists are taking the process a step further, by reinterpetting existing films through the process of splicing, layering and digitalising old film into new contexts and narratives.
