Layers of Creativity

Abstract

Copying in the process of creativity has long been a controversial topic in the copyright discourse. While Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 provides exceptions for certain dealings, the concept of originality remains to be one of the key concepts of the Act, thus uncertainties arise for the ones who rely on copyright-protected works in their creative expressions.
In this interview, we focused on two of [Graham Rawle's] projects in order to interrogate the relationship between copying and creativity: Woman’s World (2005), a 437-page collaged novel created entirely from found texts snipped from vintage women’s magazines. The novel is about Norma’s struggle to live up to the prescribed ideas of feminine perfection. And the subsequent Woman’s World Film project where Rawle aims to use a similar methodology, working with film clips to narrate Norma’s story.
