Everything is a Remix

Everything is a Remix is a very well made and interesting series about taking the old and make something new, a.k.a remixing. The series concentrates  on music and Hollywood, but I think it applies to all areas of our lifes. Just think of fashion, graphic design, software to name a few. Basically anything that can be attributed with innovation / creativity.

If you think of it, remixing is exactly what nature does too: the result is evolution. So what we call innovation is actually evolution. Ok, there are some exceptions to that, for example random discoveries like Teflon. But generally innovation evolves. This leads me to think that probably the best way to innovate is to look into the past and present to see what others have done, copy it, and add your own ideas into the mix Рet volià, you might have created something new and useful.

Additional information to the series can be found on Kirby Ferguson’s project website: www.everythingisaremix.info

Ok, let’s Copy, Transform and Combine. Have fun!
