Of Cuckoos and Sparrows is an inquiry into the prevalence of form and content in relationship to the authorship in the landscape of hyper-exposures. Each artist will be assigned a random counterpart each. They are to conduct simple research on the assigned counterpart in order to distill and imitate the stylistic inclination of the assigned counterpart. The content or the subject matter of the work will remain thematically consistent to his or her own body of work. Their assigned counterpart will be made known only to them and it is recommended that it remain undisclosed during the course of the experiment.
9 visual artists and illustrators Allison M Low, A Whispering Campaign, Charmumu, Dan Wong, Lee Xinli, Mrydette, Teeteeheehee, Qimmy Shimmy, Yellow Mushmellow are invited to create new works via means of intentional imitation to experiment on the perception of authorship and authenticity in contemporary visual arts.
