Appropriation is taking or borrowing of elements to recontextualize them or create new works. The borrowed elements may include images, forms, or styles from art history or from popular culture, or materials and techniques from non-art contexts (i.e. everyday objects). The audience or viewer may or may not by aware of the intertextuality of the imagery.
The world is indebted to the artists at Walt Disney studios who have, for some time now, found ways to humanize, personify, and recontextualize animals, birds, fish, and inanimate objects. This lesson borrows from the same concept; create original character modifications based on inanimate objects, and place them in classic works of art, thus changing the context.
