A group on the vanguard of art, culture, and digital media since the 80′s.
“Negativland have been creating records, CDs, video, fine art, books, radio and live performance using appropriated sound, image and text. Mixing original materials and original music with things taken from corporately owned mass culture and the world around them, Negativland re-arranges these found bits and pieces to make them say and suggest things that they never intended to. In doing this kind of cultural archaeology and “culture jamming” (a term they coined way back in 1984), Negativland have been sued twice for copyright infringement.
In 2004 Negativland worked with Creative Commons to write the Creative Commons Sampling License, an alternative to existing copyrights that is now in widespread use by many artists, writers, musicians, film makers, and websites.
Negativland is like a subliminal cultural sampling service concerned with making art about everything we aren’t supposed to notice.”

Talk, You by Evan Zimroth
I like talking with you, simply that:
conversing, a turning-with or -around, as in
your turning around to face me
suddenly, saying Come, and I turn
with you, for a sometime
hand under my under-
things, and you telling me
what you would do, where,
on what part of my body
you might talk to me differently.
At your turning,
each part of my body turns to verb.
We are the opposite of
tongue-tied, if there were such an
antonym; we are synonyms
for limbs’ loosening of syntax,
and yet turn to nothing:
It’s just talk.
