Since I’ve returned from Winter Break I’ve been focusing a lot of my time researching things like hip hop’s use of sampling, copyright law, and how basically everything has already been done before. One video series I came across entitled Everything is a Remix does a great job in explaining the idea of remixing as it pertains to music. movies, technology, etc.

Part 4

This research is something that I will take advantage of in our March BFA show and I believe this will be a path that I pursue for the rest of my time in this BFA program. My artist’s statement will need a complete reconstruction but I am excited to explore the legal, moral and ethical issues of “originality” in my artwork.
