Presentation of my final project Michela Menghini
Definition of remix culture Remix culture is a term employed by Lawrence Lessig and other copyright activists to describe a society which allows and encourages derivative works. It can be defined as the global activity consisting on the creative and efficient exchange of information made possible by digital technologies that is supported by the practice of cut/copy and paste.
The political remix is a process of cutting and pasting video, images and words together, trying to create something new, that expresses which is your point of view
Through the political remix, people can say important things in a playful way
Many people speak about Political Remix, but I decided to focus my research on:
Henry Jenkins <ul><li>Jonathan McIntosh </li></ul>Political Remix is the art of making do, a poached culture. It is the recontextualization of borrowed images. It is an art of quotation that anchors its images to a referent, either drawn from the fan’s meta-textual understanding of the series characters and their universe or assigned them within the construction of a new narrative. Political Remix Video is a process of Do It Yourself cultural creation by transforming mass media fragments through re-cutting, recycling and re-framing messages. It has the potential to help us imagine a better more just society and help illuminate corruption, hypocrisy and injustice in our world.
I think that the worst enemy of the remix video is copyright.
Many people need to scream and give talks to the streets to be heard…
