Remixthebook: Everything, all at once.
Mark Hancock reviews Remixthebook by artist, author Mark Amerika and
co-curator and artist Rick Silva, consisting of over 25 contributing
international artists, poets, and critical theorists, all of them
interdisciplinary in their own practice-based research, who sample from
remixthebook and manipulate the selected source material through their
own artistic and theoretical filters.
"Amerika explores various precedents for the remixological concept and
draws on some known practitioners from the past: amongst them, Allen
Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs and Brion Gysin. He explores existing
ideas and welds them into his own armoury. Their ideas considered as
part of his own creative practice, brought back to the 'now' with new
life, in our contemporary networked culture." Hancock.
