MAKE WITH ME
For this Make Cycle, we would love for you to choose something (an artifact, a story, a picture, a video clip, an anything) and over the course of the week remediate it through one or more different media. A remediation cycle might start as a drawing, move to a video, then to a cross stitched text, then to a webpage. Another cycle might begin with a blog post, move to a garden sculpture, become a gif, and result in a speech. You might even may choose to browse the Makes from the first week’s cycle and remediate an introduction someone posted, with proper attribution of course!
The media you choose to work with are up to you. We hope that you will be inspired to explore at least one unfamiliar medium to prompt new understanding about what it means to translate a message from one medium to another. If you’re looking for a place to start, consider remediating your introductory artifact from the first Make Cycle. Over the course of the Make Cycle, we’ll consider how remediation draws attention to our composing processes and our identities as composers.
