GLOSSARY

#1: In 1980 Craig Owens discussed allegory in relation to strategies of appropriation of found images in artistic practices of his time. Owens linked the concept of “appropriated imagery” to that of site by referring to Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty (1970), stating that “work and site […] stand in a dialectical relationship” because the artist has “engaged in the reading of the site, in terms of its topographical specifics [the structure, the interface, perhaps] but also of its psychological resonance [the relationship with the context, the viewer, in terms of its inner nature, perhaps].” — Marialaura Ghidini, Appropriating Web Interfaces: From the Artist As DJ to the artist As Externalizer (2021)
