I employ appropriation in much of my work, riffing on the social history and widely understood connotations of the original material. We Can Work it Out (2014) is a rewrite of the familiar Beatles tune of the same name. My version speaks of online arguments and the unconstructive nature of aggressive debates on social media sites. I, somewhat idealistically, propose a productive form of constructive and balanced debate.

We Can Work it Out is an original composition by the Beatles
