“Oliver Jeffers is a world-famous creator of picture books for children, such as the award-winning Lost and Found. With his captivating paintings, collages, installations, and collaborative works—presented in his first monograph Neither Here Nor There—Jeffers also tells deeply incisive stories and poses provocative philosophical questions. Gestalten.tv met him in the wake of the opening of his current exhibition HERE OR THERE at Gestalten Space to learn about kids as critics, the art of storytelling, and, of course, quantum physics.”

I’ve shared Kirby Ferguson’s” Everything is a Remix” video a while back…just saw these quotes over at Brainpickings HERE…so true!

“Nothing is completely original. All artists’ work builds on what came before. Every new idea is just a remix or a mashup of two previous ideas.”

(Another great quote by iconic designer Paula Scher she points us to:)

“We can pick our teachers and we can pick our friends and we can pick the books we read and the music we listen to and the movies we see, etcetera. You are a mashup of what you let into your life.”
