Re-mix

About

In this blog we use the remix to define 1. a visual researchmethod that unravels or deconstructs existing images to understand the references, strategies & systems behind them… and 2. a designmethod that uses strategies to subvert systems by combining & re-editing existing images to produce something new.
This archive collects examples of visual remixes in order to explore what the remix means in 21c visual pop.culture. Beyond aesthetics, the act of remix is an act of rebellion that defies the ruling powers. We got to fight the powers that be.
