Christian Marclay - Body Mix

In 1991 Christian Marclay began to use album covers as a medium, resulting in a group of work called Imaginary Records. Drawing on a vast collection of album covers and modifying them, Marclay began to explore the way music functions socially. Notions of nostalgia and sexual stereotypes are exposed in the smart and visually powerful album-cover collages from his Body Mix series.

These are awesome. I wonder what copyright law would say about him using other photographers work for his art. Kinda reminds me of a visual representation of the music sampling argument.
