1. Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is nonexistent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”

    — Jim Jarmusch From The Golden Rules of Filming

  2. Theaters -  Hiroshi Sugimoto

    One night I had an idea while I was at the movies: to photograph the film itself. I tried to imagine photographing an entire feature film with my camera. I could already picture the projection screen making itself visible as a white rectangle. In my imagination, this would appear as a glowing, white rectangle; it would come forward from the projection surface and illuminate the entire theater. This idea struck me as being very interesting, mysterious, and even religious.

  12. moDernisT (from The ghost in the MP3) - Ryan Maguire 

    "moDernisT" was created by salvaging the sounds lost to mp3 compression from the song "Tom’s Diner", famously used as one of the main controls in the listening tests to develop the MP3 encoding algorithm.
    Here we find the form of the song intact, but the details are just remnants of the original, scrambled artifacts hinting at what once was.
