Andy Smith: Creativity, Plagiarism, Instagram and more..
Thu, March 23, 2017, 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM GMT
Artist, amateur adventurer, photographer and graphic designer Andy Smith will be hosting a lecture at the Digital Greenhouse in collaboration with the Guernsey Photography Festival entitled…
“The Originality and Appropriation of Art and Ideas and What Does it all Mean in the Creative Process?”
This lecture is planned to raise just as many questions as it answers. It is designed to encourage discourse. In these post-modern times where artists are on instagram and instagram is art it is becoming increasingly difficult to navigate the world around us and to understand just what it is we are looking at!
Using examples from his own career along with case studies from international artists, designers and photographers together we’ll examine the following subjects:
What is creativity?
What makes a good idea?
When does inspiration become plagiarism and does it matter?
Is it OK to appropriate images?
The importance of context?
