Nothing is original …
‘Steal from anywhere that resonates inspiration,or fuels your imagination.
Devour old films, new films, books, paintings, photos poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows, select things that speak directly to your soul. If you do this your work and theft will be authentic.
Authenticity is invaluable, originality is non-existent and do not bother concealing your thievery; celebrate it if you feel like it.
In any case always remember what Jean Luc Godard said ‘ It is not where you take things from it is where you take them too’
