Authorship And Interaction
Cutup consists of a band of anonymous artist who live and work in London. Using pre-existing elements of the urban environment to create urban installations.
In these examples advertising billboards have been covered with images created out of a collage of flyers and other ephemera.
BUT, the question is, where does the authorship lie? by using materials which already existed and were designed and produced for a different purpose and manipulating them to create something totally different. The Copy Left law would argue that permission wasn't given to adapt the original work (the flyers and ephemera) when they are cut to being unrecognisable and then put together to create a new piece of visual art. Where is the recognition for the original art? but should there be any considering its been taken out of its intended context and is now unrecognisable as the original.
Man with a Movie Camera

Software has been specifically developed for this projects archives, sequences and streams submitted for the film. infinite versions of the film are possible.
