Copy That! "They Are the World"

For the new Art21 Magazine, (Oct/Nov Issue: "Becoming an Artist"), Joy 
Garnett launches her new column with some thoughts on copying and 
archival tendencies in the 21st century.

"I sometimes forget that my students have always lived with digital 
media, not to mention with the ethos of information sharing that digital 
technologies engender. As digital natives, they were born at or after 
the onset of digital mainstream culture. They have never experienced a 
world before laptops, personal computers, and smartphones. They have 
never traveled abroad without the convenience of ATMs or booked a flight 
without the ability to check-in online and print their e-tickets. They 
have probably never received paper bills for their credit cards, and 
they don’t use stamps. They have never lived outside the network or off 
the grid; the grid is the air around them."
