In this single-channel video art work, New York-based artist Yoshi Sodeoka remixes Mark Amerika's remixthebook.
Says Sodeoka: "Commissioned to make a video art piece to accompany Mark Amerika's upcoming remixthebook, I received a half hour of green screen footage of the author speaking about remix culture. I was too impatient to sit through it and understand what Mark Amerika had to say. In fact, I’m not sure what this whole thing is even really about since I didn’t watch the whole thing.
I’m not trying to say that the footage of Amerika’s speech is dull. I’m just lazy and have a short attention span. In fact, I probably won’t even read the remixthebook. So, really, this video piece is about me slacking."
