Reconstitution

Reconstitution - John Boyle-Singfield

This 90-minutes long video is a remake of the movie Baraka (1992), using clips found on corporate sites that sell stock images and footage. The original version and the new version are simultaneously shown in the video. This work intends to criticize the massive appropriation of bare life by these web corporations, while addressing general concerns on collective memory, authorship and image distribution.
