Let me quote myself: “Between 2010 and 2012, filmmaker Kirby Ferguson released Everything is a remix, a four-part series that explored art and creativity, and in particular how artists inevitably borrow from one another, draw on past ideas and conventions, and then transform those materials into something beautiful and new. In the initial series, Ferguson targeted musicians, filmmakers, writers, and even video game creators. Now, a little over a decade later, Ferguson has resurfaced with the fifth and final chapter of his series, this episode focusing on a different kind of artist: artificial intelligence.” You can watch the full release of “Everything is a Remix” above with all parts combined into a single, hour-long video. A transcript of the entire production can be found here. Watches. Ponder. Create.
