European Media Art Festival 2010: Mash Up

EMAF-European Media Art Festival, Osnabrück
The range of images, films, music and texts on the internet is growing rapidly. All digitally available elements can be used as material to make new collages. For this reason, many artists scour the internet’s servers for raw material to integrate into their works of art. This way, unusual links to the found material can be established. A “copy & paste” culture has emerged in the digital age.The often ironic game in which different media are remixed has become popular fun, thanks to broad access to powerful computers. This way, an individual product is added to or juxtaposed against the apparent chaos of the overly complex world of information and stream of images – “Mash up” is born, the collage of the 21st century.
