The panel takes Ocampo’s syncretic approach to image-making as a point of departure, and considers what collaging might further look like as a mode of constructing personal and cultural realities in the urban.
How do signs operate through concepts of ‘mash-up’ aesthetics? How have digital technologies impacted the ways in which we read, generate and distribute signs? How do the materials of signs — paint, fabric, pixels — affect their semantics? Can signs be empty, or are they perpetually vehicles of meaning and value? Might the polemics generated by ‘mash-up’ culture then require a more urgent and careful reconsideration?
