Guy Overfelt via Jim Jarmusch as it relates to Overfelt’s new Picasso Bong works; Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”
