Remix Culture

"There are no original ideas - culture is either a blending or distilling process,"  could be a pretty good summary of one of the main ideas of this blog.  The last three or four posts put this in an atomic/scientific context and so 'combining or splitting,' would be a better way to say it set against this logic.

A nice example...

These graphics look very contemporary; digital but also Illustrative like Japanese retro computer art.

Whereas in their original context they look like small town marketing of 20 years ago.  Remixed into a different format and used in a different context culture can be remade from the raw materials of what is already there.
