Doctorate research exhibition

This is the exhibition outcome for my Doctorate of Philosophy, titled; The copy as a paradox of change, copying and mimicry in social interaction.

My research explored the role of copying as an agent for change. I studied creative and social examples in which the act of copying was a revolutionary act that created change. I found this to be a paradox that undermined concepts of singular originality.

And here is my thesis -  The copy as a paradox of change: copying and mimicry in social interaction.
