He's asking more specfically not about found footage but about work that reappropriates each others footage. I do think this is partly a question about the aesthetics of blogging and vogging and one that will increasingly come to the fore as people learn how they can do it. But at the moment a lot of the work is dominated by a first person observational come participational methodology, not that dissimilar to early blogs really. cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/
