cutting fields

With the advent of collage, cutting and pasting became a hallmark of 20th century Modernism. From Picasso to William Burroughs to DJ Shadow, artists have been inspired by the play of recombination – by the possibilities of finding, cutting and rejoining materials from the world. As the rising paradigm of digital media production, ‘cut-and-paste’ techniques have been renewed and spread across a myriad of art forms, from Hip-Hop to hypertext, from film to fashion.
