Spears (2005). Re-Constructing the Colonizer: Self-representation by First Nations Artists.

“Our artistic work is created around an obstacle course of colonial misunderstandings, cultural protocol, ethical concerns, community lateral violence and funding categories which sometimes attempt to determine the ‘Aboriginalness’ of the work.” (p 128)

Benjamin (2006). The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction.

Since the eye perceives more swiftly than the hand can draw, the process of pictorial reproduction was accelerated so enormously that it could keep pace with speech.” (p 19-20)
