The term remix often refers to the creative process of sampling and recombining pieces of electronic music to form a new composition. It is also an aesthetic found in literature, visual art, and digital media. The process of cutting up, reordering, and collaging images is prevalent in works by visual artists in the 20th century. Access to digital duplicates makes the process of remixing an even more complex issue for contemporary artists who appropriate images by other artists into their own works.
For the ReMixed Media Project, Please BRING TO CLASS:
Everything you need to be VERY productive...your laptop, your imagebank, your mouse or tablet, your sketchbook. BE PREPARED to work in class on digital remix exercises.
Please BRING your 5 images that you will freely share for remix projects in the class Image Bank on Flickr. These images MUST BE YOUR OWN, they can be drawings, photographs, digital illustrations... any media as long as YOU created them.
Please provide at least one image for each of the 5 categories:
1. Pattern (repetition, deliberate design)
2. Texture (tactile, random, natural)
3. Landscape (wide view of exterior location)
4. Machine (any size, please remove from background)
5. Organism (plant, animal, human, please remove from background)
You will upload to the Flickr group AND share on public folder if necessary.
Title EACH image with EXACT name:
Pattern_yourname.jpg, Texture_yourname.jpg, Landscape_yourname.jpg, Machine_yourname.jpg, Living_yourname.jpg
We will discuss use of this public domain mark for use in the shared imagebank:
We will be doing MANY things during the ReMix Project. You will be experimenting with MANY ways of digital imaging, AND then we will test MANY ways of transferring and remixing the imagery onto other surfaces... such as various papers, fabric, ceramic, glass, metal and wood.
