Cory Arcangel describes himself an appropriation artist, in the Dadaist tradition of Hannah Hoech’s newspaper collages and Marcel Duchamp’s readymade urinal fountain. “The difference is that my content is delivered digitally,” Arcangel says, describing a computer-based art practice that often involves tweaking everyday commercial products like video-game cartridges and turning them into art.
