The Ethics of Remix - Seminar with Jonathan McIntosh, Rebellious Pixels
Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: , HUMlab-X, Umeå Arts Campus
The event is for: students - anyone - employees
There has been much discussion about the legal issues surrounding remixing media but what about the ethics of appropriation? How do we navigate questions specifically relating to the power dynamics that arise when remixing someone else's media. Is there a meaningful difference between remixing corporate or government media and remixing works by individuals? This seminar will examine these moral and ethical implications.
Jonathan McIntosh is a pop culture hacker and transformative storyteller. He has been remixing mass media narratives for critical purposes since before the invention of YouTube. Everything he makes is freely available on the internet to view, share and remix. His viral remix videos “Buffy vs Edward” and “Donald Duck meets Glenn Beck” have been featured and discussed by major media publications including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The LA Times and on National Public Radio.
