On the topic of remixing, I thought I would give Prezi a go.
“Everything is a remix” – Kirby Ferguson
Remix culture has come a long way, with the help of convergent media it will only continue to expand. Over the last several decades music has largely been associated with remixing. Although diving into the world of film, art etc it seems that even what we deem to be ‘original’ is an appropriation of another existing artefact e.g. songs, movies, artworks.
I have found that while myself and many others question the originality of the ‘remixed’ content that is produced, each appropriation has its own unique take on the former product which in a sense I would argue is ‘original’. When we speak about remixing, it is not only copying and pasting elements of project onto a new platform but it is more about what we are incorporating these elements into and how we use it.
