Techniques and Time



Craig Balwdin

Tribulations 99

Some useful thoughts on TECHNIQUE in remix:

Unusual juxtapositions (this doesn't belong with that!) - think about Craig Baldwin's "Tribulations 99" shown in lecture.

Remaking with variation - as in Cindy Sherman's "History Portraits" or Mel Ramos' Superman

Integration of readymade/found material - this is what Rauschnberg does in Estate and

Recontextualization from medium to medium (as in Andy Warhol's Brillo Boxes , some of Jeff Koon's work)

Idea and phrase generation from cut-up techniques (and other chance-operations) - as in cut-up novels by William Burroughs.











Altering the FORM through: 

lengthening or shortening (remember 24 Hour Pyscho by Douglas Gordon)

enlarging (remember Richard Prince's Cowboy photographs)

repetition (Dara Birmbaum's Technology Transformation (Wonder Woman)

migrating from one-medium-to-another (like Cindy Sherman, ANT Farm)

revealing the original FORM - Nomi Talisman's "Other Peoples Pictures" and found-film videos.

serial techniques - Brendan Lott, Stephanie Syjuco
