Artists’ sketch- and notebooks have often been searched for insight into the process of inspiration. In a digital age, amidst masses of stunning imagery found online every day, the challenge for creatives is not only to filter and reflect this input, but also to develop a raison d’être, relevance and impact for any new images brought into the world.
In their video Muse, FIELD is remixing their private digital scrapbooks from the last 3 years. A flood of inspiring images and references is transformed into an ocean of colour, fuelled from Evernote, our blog field.io/process, our favourites on Google Reader and Flickr, and other sources.
“With Muse we would like to touch on the controversial nature of internet sharing culture.
By using other people’s work in our film we acknowledge the impact of referencing and mimicking on the creative process, while originality, authorship, and crediting remain sensitive topics in a world where images spread like chinese whispers.” – FIELD
