Borrowed

Multi-part interactive  installation

“Borrowed” is an installation that relies on interactive technologies to explore the concept of appropriation. It is based on An Honest Ghost, a novel by Rick Whitaker entirelyconstructed of unedited sentences borrowed from over 500 books. These sentences were taken out of their original context and recycled into a mosaic of quotations. The books hanging in the installation are the actual books that Whitaker used to construct his piece.  

 

“Borrowed” translates Whitaker’s allegorical work into a digital media landscape. Using projection mapping, sound and sculpture, “Borrowed” seeks to explore the idea of appropriation in contemporary aesthetic production
