Appropriation in the Arts This chapter generally validates the notion I offered earlier that IP law tends to care a lot less about protecting intellectual property than about following the money. –Art doesn’t get main stream exposure. –Art doesn’t generate the revenue stream. –So artists generally continue with traditional patterns of intertextual appropriation, generally unfettered.
Sound Collage Artists used as experimentation, since the very beginnings of recorded sound, what we would now have to call “sampling” (over which one is forced to pay extensive fees and obtain tough permissions). –By the late 1980’s artists in this genre were targeted by intellectual-property holding companies.
A practical problem in the law: Which infringements should we promote? Forbid? Must we thereby silence all? Sound collage artists. –Snips, mixed, a “new” thang. Hip-hop style recording artists. –Often borrows the underlying backbone Not for profit thief. For profit thief. Cultural Garfinklers (copyright liberation fronts)
Visual Collage and Appropriation Art Centuries, not decades. Mainstream (though avant-garde at the time) Satire and parody often get “art” off the IP hook.
–“Intertextuality is central to many different practices of cultural production, but various intertextual modes of cultural production directly conflict with the logic(s) of intellectual property law (with its situated notion of authorship and ownership)”. p. 140
Digital Literacy 2.0 and Media Collage Integrating Multiple Forms of Sound, Graphics, and Images Suzanne Pitner Creating New Media Leads to Understanding –People also create media collages by making mashups, a combination of sound, graphics, words and images drawn from different places. The resulting effect may be quite disparate from the intentions of the authors of the original pieces. Creating these types of presentations lends a better understanding to the effects of editing and the media process. Art as a Form of Media Literacy –Digital technology has made it possible to create and manipulate art never imagined by the masters of old. Rather than blending and mixing paint, textures, and colors, the new media allows people to combine entire images and enhance them with sound and motion. Visual literacy is integrated with the written online, and requires a knowledge of art principles to be most effective, both in presentation and interpretation. http://medialiteracy.suite101.com/article.cfm/digital_literacy_20_and_ media_collage#ixzz09Hbay4PNhttp://medialiteracy.suite101.com/article.cfm/digital_literacy_20_and_ media_collage#ixzz09Hbay4PN
