Steven Alan and Ben Boutwell made this clever little short of themselves taking photos with a magical picture frame. It’s titled “Frame of Mind”.
It was original and clever, a decade ago when François Vogel first executed the concept! (HP ‘Picture Book’)

and it still is.
So we should applaud so-called artists ripping off others without adding any creative, original thought to the concept?
yes, if it is done well, and this is !
Every artist is a cannibal, every artist is a thief. I stole that from Bono, who stole it from someone else.

I’m not even sure if these guys call themselves artists. They’re just having fun and the video is cool no matter what some dude did a decade ago.
These guys were not claiming to own the original creative process. Who cares anyway? You can redoux concepts and maintain creativity.
I saw the Vogel’s video and I think this short of Steve and Alan is not a theft. It’s just a fresh proposal of a previous idea. Creativity is recreation
Threre was some commercial on TV a couple years ago that did the same exact trick. I forget what it was for, but it blew my mind in a “how did they do that??” way. Watching this, my mind has been reblown, cause it’s still pretty damn cool.
fun and well done
