Copy-Transform-Combine – Some recent words from Anne Bogart:

Interesting – when thinking the Collaborative Project….

The task of an artist, much like that of a scientist, is to re-combine or edit existing materials in order to create something new.  Ideas are adapted, extended or improved upon based upon the needs and circumstances of the time.  Every work of art contains a recognizable reference to another work and this can be traced historically throughout the development of the arts and sciences.

Connecting ideas together and merging multiple, unrelated ideas in new and creative ways require an ability to spot the potential for creative leaps.

Combining knowledge, synthesizing information and fitting things together that do not normally go together can lead to new perspectives on a subject. By fitting things together in unexpected ways that do not normally go together I am allowing for new things to happen.
