Since 1991 British artist Vicki Bennett has been working across the field of audio-visual collage and is recognised as an influential and pioneering figure in the still growing area of sampling, appropriation and cutting up of found footage and archives.

Working under the name People Like Us, Vicki specialises in the manipulation and reworking of original sources from both the experimental and popular worlds of music, film and radio. People Like Us believe in open access to archives for creative use. In 2006 she was the first artist to be given unrestricted access to the entire BBC Archive. She has an ongoing sound art radio show 'DO or DIY' on WFMU on WFMU. The People Like Us back catalogue is available for free download hosted by UbuWeb.

At MACBA, People Like Us will present her new project The Mirror in a live a/v performance that splices together movie snippets with unique sample-based music exploring the masks that we wear represented through the lens, using parallel narratives across the screen to depict an ever-changing stream, rather than a singular, fixed being.
