The process of remixing or creating a “mashup” combines and modifies existing works to create a derivative work. Developments in technology have given rise to remix works that have taken root in our digital media culture. How will remixes and mashups impact art, economics, creativity and intellectual property in the 21st century?

This course will explore the history of remix culture and the challenges facing the future of art, economies, copyright and intellectual property in the digital age. Students will examine the technology used in mashups and remixes and the ways technology has democratized the art and production of remixes and the ways the Internet has impacted the evolution of remixes and remix culture. Course activities include journaling, presentation, research, media production, and creation and critique of remixes through different lenses.
 
Experience in using technology is welcomed but not a prerequisite for the course.
 
NOTE: This course is taught 50% online.
