…nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films,
new films,music,books,paintings,photographs,poems,dreams,random conversations,architecture,bridges,street signs,trees,clouds,bodies of water,light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul…if you do this your work(and theft) will be authentic.Authenticity is invaulable; originality is non-existent…and don`t bother concealing your thievery-celebrate it if you like it…in any case,always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: ” it`s not where you take things from- it`s where you take them to.
– Jim Jarmusch
