Hi folks, and a very warm welcome to the resampling blog. Resampling is a six month long project involving seven artists and three writers, culminating in a group exhibition at Blank gallery, Portslade in October 2009. The project reflects upon the ways in which contemporary culture absorbs and remakes the past, shaping the way we perceive ourselves. Modern media and communication have accelerated this condition. Resampling looks at the changing attitudes to the past and presents ideas on how it may be viewed in the future. The artists are structuring their work around a series of  group critiques, engaging with art historical texts and adapting their practices to work with unfamiliar media. As the objects of our collective obsession take on strange lives of their own, we’ll be posting regular photographic and textual updates.
