Blur is a project that was created in 2021, during the Coronavirus pandemic, in Birmingham. Inspired by the British art history television programme, Fake or Fortune, Blur is a fictional TV show, which analyses paintings and artworks from art history that have been created through cultural appropriation. Deciding whether the cultural appropriation is positive and fair, if the artworks demonstrate positive appropriation then these artworks are blurred; the ‘blur’ is a symbol for blurring the boundaries between different cultures, identities, and creative ideas.
