Think&Drink11: Everything is a Remix

Bernise Ang

Yes, everything is a Remix. We've always tinkered around with creativity, concepts, stuff that comes outta brains.. the whole, "ideas having sex" thing. It kinda came to how all this stuff is... combinatorial, really.

So when we came across Kirby Ferguson's video series by the above title, we were totally inspired! It came across to us as part history lesson on the borrowing and mixing of ideas, and part socio-political commentary on intellectual property. Eye-opening. 

The evening: A no-ads, no-frills, beer-in-hands screening of all 4 videos. (We highly recommend 3: The Elements of Creativity and 4: System Failure. Actually, we just recommend you watch the whole thing, it's so good. And support Kirby's effort if you can.)

Best surprise of the night: Kirby coming on Skype (!) to answer our motley Q&A! Thanks Kirby for being such a sport.

This event is a tribute to Remix as a framing of all things cultural and creative. Cheers.

Preliminaries  

 

 

Indeed.

The audience (and we should mention, the great venue at Pigeonhole!)Kirby! Kirby! Kirby! (no lah, the chanting didn't actually happen. It IS Singapore you know. Lol.)The thinking before the drinking (oh wait, beer's already in hand)Ceteris paribus, drinking aids thinking. (Except for you kids under 18!)Good conversation, we reckon, is also combinatorial. (Of interesting people. ;))That's all folks ;)
