My favorite art involves some sort of remix, so I loved this post! The section on scent was especially unexpected! Also, very cool to learn more about Jolene!
What is original? Nothing is. It is perceived as such by some because they lack the pretext. A literary term that defines the sum of "texts" known to the recipient at the moment of absorbing "text". An author may intertextually refer to other works a reader knows and as such the reader will recognise the reference. People may not know the details about the invention of the light bulb, they lack the pretext. Same with any work in any medium throughout history, as Tim wrote about Shakespeare. A fascinating topic. How can we be original? Does it matter?
Great post, so much good stuff in here! The Copperfield/Kingsolver novel is on my list. Heard her talking about it on the radio the other day.
I spent over an hour going through a lot of the resources in this post. You’ve opened my eyes to a whole new way of seeing creativity. Thank you.
Talk about remix! You cat-pair photo, which is wonderful, is much like what I am trying to do on my site. https://terryjallen.substack.com/
