In his article, Resonant Frequency, Mark Richardson suggests that we've reached a cultural moment where we conflate "who we are" with "what we're into." Drawing on this thesis, we want to suggest that instead of creating, the artist collects. Identity becomes a collage of cultural referents which come to constitute individuality. Allusion and reference become a creative gesture of authenticity, if done thoughtfully. One's selfhood can be viewed as a melange of cultural artifacts pieced together in an ostensibly arbitrary way, for, as Deleuze writes, "difference relates to difference by means of difference itself." This collage takes the form of original footage, found footage, and found images strung together to evince the production of identity. This video is representative of what Jean Baudrillard describes as a second order simulacrum-- references disconnected from their referents, a true description of a made reality.
