Oliver Laric

Oliver Laric attended the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and now lives and works in Berlin. His videos and Internet-based works draw on footage, mostly scoured from the Web, that he edits to generate new meaning. Often his individual works function like templates that, once released online, become used and remade. With Touch My Body (Green Screen Version), Laric used a green-screen filter to block out all content in pop star Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body" video. This new version was then put on YouTube for anyone to remix by layering new graphics and thus creating new narratives.
