Assignment: Ideas to Recycle

Following the example of Maurice Benayoun’s “The Dump” (see http://www.the-dump.net/ and http://www.the-dump.net/a-propos ) it’s interesting to think of ideas from the history of art and technology that could be recycled by artists today.

The assignment: identify one or more ideas of interest from kinetic art, light art, video art or Art and Technology that you would like to remake, and explain in a short presentation.
