Do you love to hate pop culture? See an ad, music video or viral video and think it would be so much better with one simple subversive tweak? This day-long workshop will cover the basics of mash up-video making and pop culture hacking. Participants will debate what makes a good mash up, make their own and upload the results to the web. And a course in mashing up media would be irresponsible if it didn't include a lesson on the ins-and-outs of fair use and copyright as it applies to creative works on YouTube! Come hack pop culture with us!

"6 collages of the exact same size were created to approximate the size of an HD video screen. The 6 collages when played frame by frame create a chaotic 6-frame animation.  HD video is juxtaposed with collage in an attempt to reconcile the difference between images "trapped" behind a screen and those "frozen forever" as still images. In today's image landscape traditional distinctions between moving and static, linear and non-linear no longer apply. Perhaps one of the only enduring distinction is the separation between images on and off screen. The resulting diptych evokes a disorienting head-space within which our subject, a young girl in a skull mask, stares  at herself in a mirror, attempting to come to terms with the impossible gap between original and copy, or self and self-image. "

This piece was included in the exhibit "Disorder Disorder: Ulterior Motives in Contemporary Art" in Penrith, Australia in 2010 and was used for the cover of the catalogue:

Project Created: 
June 2010
 

In the summer of 2010, we asked artists and curators worldwide to record themselves responding and commenting on the following questions:

What are or should be the taboos honored by cultural institutions?
Why should public funds be spent to support artwork that might offend some segment of the general public?
Does “concern for the community” justify (self)censorship?
What alternative institutional models are emerging in the face of restrictive conditions attached to public funding?

The responses and creative comments of artists and curators worldwide are collected in Power, Taboo and the Artist, an ongoing video project produced by the National Coalition Against Censorship and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School.
