Mashup Culture explores the remix culture as cultural exchange. We live in a world of ever-expanding networks, and the ways that we process and 'mash up' the various media and data reflect the evolving interconnectedness of our interactions. While studying about remix culture and collaborative process, students will manifest projects that involve mashing up media using various web-based creation tools that enable remixing of image, sound, video and data. Process becomes part of the product: emergent narratives unfold and authorship becomes fluid. The result is a series of vignettes which reflect the distributed nature of our natural dynamic, bringing us together in cohesive cultural fusion.
