BCM112 Week 4

Transformation, Fascination andgb2gJug - Imgur.gif

Material transformations can happen in many ways, especially in manual and digital forms. Most of the time, someone releases content of some sort and someone else throws a personal creative spin on that content.

This is the type of creation that ends up going viral or becoming well-known.

The first example I can think of is Mike Posner’s song “I Took a Pill in Ibiza”. For full disclosure, I absolutely love this song and played it on repeat for about 3 months, but thats besides the point.

The song was originally released by Mike Posner but then got remixed by a duo named SeeB. The song took off after the remix was made and many people only know that version before realizing there is an original.

This process has become a pattern in pop culture where content is created but the remixed versions gain popularity. This happens with songs, movies, stories, art, and basically anything you can think of.

  1. I really like how simple and how straight to the point this blog post is. Maybe link to a video that further explains remix culture/open sourcing and why its so popular, just to give the audience a bit more insight, I used this one explaining “open-sourcing” in my post, it’s a similar idea to remix culture.

    Keep up the good work 😀

  2. Hi there Zoe,
    I really like the point your blog makes on remix culture. I do think you could have possibly elaborated/ linked in some articles relating to popular culture to add more depth, and possibly mentioned something about how the music, movies and other material related becomes a global sensation. (Platforms like- Social media sites, youtube, etc). I think the way you presented the information and the way you incorporated the fun little gif, added coherence and humour to the post. Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to reading more of your work.
