do you know of art work where.....

Hey! I'm a student currently working on a found footage project. I need to find some artists who have adopted a similar production practice as my group. We are working independently of one another with only one visual image as stimulus and the premise that our sound and image will create some kind of contradiction. Please help!

    you would probably benefit from seeing bruce conner's films. check out "A movie" probably his most famous, and i think one of his best.

    can you elaborate on what you mean by 'found footage'?
    what constitutes 'found'?
    does this mean that you found a discarded video tape or film in the trash?
    or does it mean you recorded some footage from television?
    in the 80's there wasa phrase called 'appropriation', which basically meant stealing an image/sound(sequence) and 're-contextualizing' it to give it new meaning. is this what you mean?
    i have alot of experience eith stealing or 'hijacking' or 'appropriating'
    image/sound sequences from TV or video tapes of feature films and making new compositions from them.

    there is supposedly a site on the net with a lot of non royality footage, old high school education films, army training films, the work of atomicelroy, etc.
    but i'm not certain exactly where it is.
    perhaps if you googled "found footage"

    say cheese!

    i think funkstorung's "isolation image remix contest" at

    is a bit like what you are going for..
