Everything is a Remix, Nothing is Original

22 September 2010 12:30 PM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

When Jim Jarmusch published his poster-sized manifesto on the art of filmmaking, he borrowed his thesis from Jean-Luc Godard. It reinforced his point that nothing is original. But you don't have to be a fan of Ghost Dog or the French New Wave to know everything's derivative of something else. All you have to do is watch Everything is a Remix. Created by Kirby Ferguson (who you should remember from his engaging output of video art and observations under the banner of Goodiebag, and you may remember from his earlier, sexier productions), the four-part series is an examination of how our world is the way it is because of an innate cut and paste culture. Stealing, borrowing, remixing, or whatever verb you prefer isn't just how a handful of things come to fruition. It's how everything gets made. In the first installment, Ferguson chooses to look at remixing through music and lyrics of Led Zeppelin. »
