A new experimental film called Excerpt has been revealed online by Mixed Milk, a Birmingham artist called Martin McNally, as part of Birmingham Museums’ Cut, Copy, Remix project.
McNally’s proposal was selected by an expert panel including the king of collage himself, Cold War Steve, following a call out to artists to create work using the digitised images from the Trust’s collection.
The Cut Copy Remix project set out to encourage creative use of the thousands of public domain images in Birmingham Museums’ free database to celebrate the extensive resource and support emerging digital artists to use the images to inspire brilliant and innovative new work.
Excerpt was due to go on display at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, but with the doors currently closed, the film is being shared via YouTube. It will be screened in the galleries when this is possible.
