Sampling in AV : Panel Discussion
With archives opening up and online memes and supercuts now commonplace, has video sampling finally come of age? A discussion panel around the use and abuse of audiovisual sampling and it’s many challenges faced by artists working in this genre, whether creative, technical or legal. Ben Sheppee of Light Rhythm Visuals chairs the panel and discusses issues with some of the pioneers of the art-form.
