This article looks at recent video works by artist Lars Laumann. Laumann's videos take the form of documentaries and tell stories of the absurd, including conspiracy theories and a woman who falls in love with the Berlin Wall. His use of found footage and information found online brings up issues of ownership, appropriation, and open-source ethics.
