Everything Is A Remix is an amazing video series produced by Kirby Ferguson, a New York-based filmmaker. The series discusses the remix, the role of copying in artistic creation, and how innovation relies so heavily on influence and inspiration from previous creations. Here at JOBY, our product designers deal with the complicated relationship between these powerful forces day in and day out. Ferguson’s videos beautifully illustrate this complex dynamic—much better than I can explain it, at least.
I recommend you start the series from the beginning because each video builds on themes from the previous. Part Three most directly addresses invention and product design.
Part Four is scheduled to be released in October and I can’t wait! If you want to find out more about Ferguson and his Remix project visit his site Everything is a Remix.
