“Readymades, collage, found art or found text, intertexts, combines, detournment, and appropriation—all these terms represent explorations in plagiarism” (“CAE” 85) and hence argues CAE plagiarism must be allowed. o understand what CAE implies it is necessary to define for how art was viewed before and now. According to CAE Art was once considered culture as presented by the elite. This meant that art should not be copied. However in more current times there is a knowledge explosion. People have access to almost everything that the elite have and people want to experiment with art-text and non-textual. CAE’s validates this plagiaristic notion by stating that any creation does not hold an inherent value of its own. A text, a picture or a song will hold some sort of meaning only when it is connected to a process in the physical world. This connection to the process is what defines it, and hence to remix or to make a recombinant that would probably suit a different meaning should in no way be considered plagiarism, as the meaning has now changed-the context has changed.
This meaning of plagiarism as CAE states it is different from what we have been taught about plagiarism. Plagiarism with respect to writing is not considered based on context. As long as a line or section of text is used as such in our works or writing, it is said to be plagiarism, unless or until it is referenced well. The context does not matter, nor does the recombinant that it might be created in; the author has to be referenced.
