“Remixing Pop Culture” Event Videos

August 11, 2010

I organized “Remixing Popular Culture: Subverting Gender and Sexuality with Remix Video” at California State University, Northridge in March 2010 to explore how remix video can subvert gender and sexuality. I was joined by Jonathan McIntosh, Alexis Lothian, and Julie Levin Russo to talk about Political Remix Video and Vidding.

Here is the two part video of the event.  Part one discusses Vidding with Russo and Lothian presenting a brief history and a series of vids back to back.  Part two discusses Political Remix Video with McIntosh demonstrating how each video subverts the original source material.
