  12. 12. Structure
  13. 13. Remix Practices Remix definition: separating and recombining many types of media including images, video, literary text, and video game assets. It is a form of creativity. Is is a culture of “rip and create” Fagerjord (2010) RIP! A Remix Manifesto
  14. 14. “Our culture no longer bothers to use words like appropriation or borrowing to describe those very activities.Today's audience isn't listening at all - it's participating. Indeed, audience is as antique a term as record, the one archaically passive, the other archaically physical.The record, not the remix, is the anomaly today.The remix is the very nature of the digital” • (Gibson, 2005).
  15. 15. Remix is an increasingly popular activity and this is why many video collections have developed tools to motivate their users to remix audiovisual content. www.remixoid.com
  16. 16. Remixing practices can be individual practices, or collaborative. http://www.video24-7.org/http://www.video24-7.org/
  17. 17. Remix practices serve as a way to contextualize records (making them part of new entities) and decentralize curation (remixers reconsider which videos will be reuse). CC by Stallio in Flickr
  18. 18. Remixers are not perceived as possessive.They want to share their content and have it remixed or appropriated by others (Dikopoulus et al, 2007).This is a different approach in respect on how archives relate to their content. CC by Stallio in Flickr
  19. 19. The ability to share movies and feel part of the online community is perceived as central motivation for creating. CC by Stallio in Flickr
  20. 20. Why to remix? To feel part and appreciated by the online community To get attention to their message and themselves To disseminate their ideas Diakopoulus, et al, 2007 Jumpcut indicates each video’s remix history and the names of the users who have contributed clips to the current version and automatically notifies someone through email if their video has been remixed. ”Plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery”
  21. 21. How to motivate this community of remixers to interact with EUscreen material even though there might be certain limitations and conditions for sharing their work? CC by Fotonen in Flickr
  22. 22. talkTV allows viewers to search through digitized broadcasts for quotes and to extract them.Type in “how are you” and talkTV retrieves all of the scenes from a video library where the phrase is spoken: maybe one clip from “Friends”, another from “EastEnders”, another from “Absolutely Fabulous”. They system searches the Closed Captioned subtitles embedded in many broadcasts.The Closed Captions’ primary purpose is to provide the dialog of the program onscreen for deaf viewers so they can ‘read’ television.We use the Closed Captions as a script that can be searched for quotes.
  23. 23. In practical terms CC by Mariana Salgado-Our City project Everything is a remix
