Reading Response : Remix and Remixability by Lev Manovich
Remixing to my understanding is just about copying bit and pieces from whole lots of different designs and gluing them back together to form a so called new design, and the potential for these new design is normally limited to whatever informations that are there for you to use. I mean although the internet has given us opputunity to easily access to limitless informations, but in a way we are still being limited to the sources that are available. So, I wouldn't consider a remix piece as a new design, maybe a refined or degraded version of the original piece would be a better description. A new design I think should really be original.
