Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiratoin or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authentic is invaluable; originality is non-existent.” — Jim Jarmush

Working with visual things

“When one travels and works with visual things – architecture, painting or sculpture – one uses one’s eyes and draws, so as to fix deep down in one’s experience what is seen. Once the impression has been recorded by the pencil, it stays for good, entered, registered, inscribed. The camera is a tool for idlers, who use a machine to do their seeing for them, to draw oneself, to trace the lines, handle the volumes, organise the surface… all this means to first look, and then to observe and finally perhaps to discover… and it is then that inspiration may come.” — Le Corbusier
