Remix_Day2_Hintermeyer_0001_10

Digital Art Mixed-Media Students / NEW YEAR REMIX Wrap-up

The Remix Project asks you to work up multiple versions of your experimental remix images each day in class. Over the weekend, please use the watercolor background paintings to remix another set of playful compositions. You will have digital work time in class on Tuesday, but please begin these over the weekend, to be sure you will have 10 fresh remixed images by end of day on Tuesday ok? I am hoping you can assert your own aesthetic and create some surprising images that mix and balance the messiness with some simplicity. Empty space is a great tool for setting off the complexity of layered remixes. Find your own way to express the theme : New Year Remix
DUE NEXT WEEK on THURSDAY:  The project will wrap up next week, DUE in YOUR OWN FOLDER in google drive name it : YOURNAME_REMIX_FINAL
inside, please include folders of many DIGITAL versions due :
Your Image Bank (photos, drawings, etc)
10 images of Day 1 digital remixes
10 images of Collage Day
10 images of Day 2 digital remixes
10 images of Watercolor Paint Day
10 images of ROUND 3 Final Digital Remixes
 ALSO DUE ON THURSDAY

Public Domain Review

screen-shot-2017-02-22-at-12-12-24-pmI like to visit the Public Domain Review, an online resource for public domain content, especially historical imagery that inspires my own remix projects.

…curated collections of images, books, audio and film, shining a light on curiosities and wonders from a wide range of online archives. With a leaning toward the surprising, the strange, and the beautiful, we hope to provide an ever-growing cabinet of curiosities for the digital age

So much great stuff to look at here, including the recent release of the Met Museum’s collection of hi rez images:

Project 2 : Climate REMIX : IMAGEBANK

Over the next month we will be experimenting with ideas and methods of REMIX via collaborative image making on the theme : Climate Remix. Step one will be creating a class imagebank on google drive. Each student will contribute at least one image to each of the 10 categories in the Climate Remix Imagebank. All the images must be original,  and at least half of the images should be created by hand, via traditional art materials like drawing and painting. The other half of the images can be photos or digitally generated images. We will be using this project to explore various uses of remixed imagery, for installation, projection, animation and mixed-media works. This project stresses the shared-use of imagery, as another way of understanding creative property rights and the creation of public domain content.
