What did you learn about remixing video technically or creatively? What do you think about remix as a form of creativity and communication?

Co-Teaching Team Task Outline • In your team, use either Slideshare or Prezi to create an online presentation about online photography culture and share on the lab class wiki • The presentation should do the following: • Compare and contrast the Sleeveface and Dear Photograph blogs as examples of online participatory photography culture

Add a caption to explain the meaning it has for you. • Two examples of online participatory photography blogs that have also become books
  8. 8. • The term 'Sleeveface’ was devised in April 2007 by Carl Morris and with his friend John Rostron, he put them online and created a Facebook group • They co-authored a book Sleeveface : Be The Vinyl (2008), based on worldwide submissions to their WordPress site Sleeveface • There is also a Sleevefacer iPhone app Picture Credit: Craig and Pete: ‘Listen with múm’ • (Wikipedia, 2012)
