This unit of study examines the history of remixing, mashing and remaking of found material in popular culture genres such as hip-hop and rap, the appropriation art associated with postmodernism, and the "do-it-yourself", hacker sensibility of cyberpunk. It also investigates how these practices are changing concepts of ownership, originality and creativity. As well as critically exploring these questions, students will also create their own remix.
