The in-depth and ever insightful discussion of my Breaker High post lead me to remember this interesting video essay "Versions" by Oliver Laric. He muses on analysing interpretations rather than originals in that they are just as, if not more "real". Key issues include re-appropriation, alteration, and subsequent consumption of these images.
At least I think that's what it's about.. It took me a few viewings to grasp what he was saying.. anyway, it's a trippy video to watch late at night when you're in a sleep deprived, self medicated haze of eye strain and creative block.
