People Quote People - The Death of the Author 2.0
2007. Engraved white marble. 30x19x4cm each

This work explores plagiarism and issues of authorship in the era of the creative economy, with its attendant profusion of artistic creations and their remixes. In this artwork the quotations no longer refer to the correct authors. On the mock website, quotations are continually reordered randomly with different authors, spreading online misquotations as a form of liberation from the fixation on authorship. The offline installation reflects the new death of the author through engraved slabs of marble with historical misquotes about plagiarism in creative works.

Installation at "Nothing Political", Komplot - Bruxelles 2010.
