Remix or Plagiarism

September 15, 2017

The article: Jonathan Lethem’s The Ecstasy of Influence: A Plagiarism and the TED talk: Embrace the Remix by Kirby Ferguson’s, find a common ground in the discussion about the authenticity of creativity and therefore the creative process.

This argument brought me back to this quote: “Creation is only the projection into form of what which already exist” – Srimad Bhagavatam, Ancient Hindu Text (pg. 71). When I first encounter this quote, I resisted the idea that I was not original or creative, It was a kind of personal offense, but after I started reviewing and questioning my own creative process, I realized that statement was true, I was recreating many existing codes and patterns, yet I was being creative in the way I've been connecting all the pieces in the projection of this creative puzzle.

I agree with Ferguson "Copy, transform and combine, everything is a remix"
