These past 2 weeks in DS106, we have been working on Remix/Mashup assignments. Many of the things created combined and manipulated already generated content and material, asking us to further transform these things in order to tell a new story. I really enjoyed many of these assignments. They allowed us to utilized other techniques we’ve learned in the class all semester, including video, audio, and visual editing skills. I also think that remix/mashup assignments ask for a different kind of creativity than other assignments. You not only have to create something and tell a story, but you have to transform the base elements in order to avoid copying/copywright. It really gives us an opportunity to stretch our imaginations and take our ideas further than the prompts themselves.
Below are all of the assignments I completed for Weeks 13 & 14:
- Remix Assignment- Emo Love Poem by E.E. Cummings
- Mashup Assignments [9 total stars]
- Daily Creates
