Everything Is a Remix

Everything is a Remix Part 1 from Kirby Ferguson on Vimeo.

Produced by Kirby Ferguson, Everything is a Remix is a great two-part (soon to be three-part) look at how remixing underpins pretty much every facet of our modern culture.

I can still remember the day when, as an undergrad industrial design student, I realised -with the help of a world-weary lecturer- that there was nothing new in the world, just better, smarter ways to mash stuff together.

I felt both dejected at relived; dejected because my ego wanted the salve of original thought. Relieved because design was just like the music I was listening to. Easy, right?

Youthful arrogance knocked out of me, I soon realised that remixing well is one of the toughest jobs in the world. Yet somehow at Sense we do it day in day out.

Like all things, I guess practice makes perfect.

Hat tip to SwissMiss for bringing this to light.
