Frieze Art Fair, London
For his project at Frieze Art Fair 2011, Oliver Laric will be creating stock video footage to be published for free use as public domain material. This portfolio of film footage will be shot in and around the fair, using a number of specialist high-resolution cameras with specific slow motion and digital cinematographic features. Usually this material, held in image archives such as Getty Images or Corbis, is available to buy for use in corporate films, adverts and Internet ‘idents’, as well as on personal blogs and websites. Often acting as a mediator, Laric extends the offer of an anonymous collaboration across the Internet, collating and exhibiting the results in exhibitions as his own.
