I'm perplexed here: why does Mike Sarff think he has to ask permission from an artist to make a remix of this image?? This to me is a fair use/transformative project, freeing Mike from the contraints of asking permission and paying a licensing fee should that have factored in.

Artist collective MTAA work in Dubrovnik AND New York. This week M.River holds down the fort in Manhattan remixing a variety of images taken this week at the Summit. Most of these works are simple Photoshop jobs reflecting the image and using the pen function. I enjoy the crapesque aesthetic of these works and the fact that the act of mirroring itself employs the commons spirit.
As a side note to this brief introduction, M.River thinks his project is bizarrely cursed. In the newest iteration of the curse he learns the boat he had been sampling may have been a copyrighted image. Although I doubt this is the case, I have decided not to post that particular image until he tracks down the history of the photo. For those who are curious however, it can be viewed on the MTAA blog.
