Eduardo Navas: Remix in Cultural Analytics
Eduardo Navas is currently doing research on patterns of YouTube video remixes. For his lecture, he will discuss the evolution of remix in different viral videos and their responses. He will focus specifically on when and how a video remix takes effect in complementary relation to other YouTube videos. Navas will reflect on productions of original footage and remix as important vehicles of communication and creative practice. In this lecture, Navas will expand on his theory of the selective remix, which is one of four forms of remix that he has defined in his research.
Eduardo Navas is a Post-Doctorate Fellow in the Department of Information Science and Media Studies at The University of Bergen, Norway in affiliation with the Software Studies Lab at University of California San Diego.
