Abstract

Art, Media Design, and Postproduction: Open Guidelines on Appropriation and Remix offers a set of guidelines for art and design studio-based projects. The creative applications of appropriation and remix are now common across creative disciplines due to the ongoing recycling and repurposing of content and form. Consequently, basic elements that were previously exclusive to postproduction for editing image, sound, and text are now part of daily communication. This in turn pushes artists and designers to reconsider their creative methodologies. Author Eduardo Navas divides his book into three parts: “Media Production,” “Metaproduction,” and “Postproduction.” The chapters that comprise the three parts each include an introduction and goals for guidelines of a studio-based project, which are complemented by an explanation of relevant history, as well as examples and case studies. The guidelines are designed to encourage readers to repurpose the instructional material according to their own methodologies and choice of medium. Navas also provides theoretical context to encourage critical reflection on the effects of remix in the production of art and design. Art, Media Design, and Postproduction: Open Guidelines on Appropriation and Remix is the first book of guidelines to take into account the historical, theoretical, and practical context of remix as an interdisciplinary act. It is an essential read for those interested in remix studies and appropriation in art, design, and media.
