Everything is a remix – Remix Culture

Just watched the four part series of ‘Everything is a remix’ by Kirby Ferguson, would highly recommend, it’s a real eye opener.  Check it out here http://www.everythingisaremix.info/watch-the-series/.

It explains the ‘remix’ culture we live in today, copy -> transform -> combine, the three steps to creation.  Listen to Led Zeppelin, watch George Lucas’ Star Wars, or the contemporary remix king Tarantino’s Kill Bill and you can see ‘creation from influence’ being taken to the literal extremes, but still, you cannot deny the grandeur of these works.  I do thoroughly recommend you watch the video though, if there was any doubt before, after watching – it will make you say remix culture is a big positive!

Heavily influenced by Kirby Ferguson & the content of his videos 😉
