Rip, mix, burn

with one comment

I’m reading Alexander Reid’s The Two Virtuals and I really think he’s articulated the concept of “rip, mix, burn” really well.  Especially for my interest in memory studies, “r,m,b” is especially helpful.  Here it is:

Rip: the initial act of pulling something from somewhere, either from personal experience or from an external source

Mix: sending the ripped material into the rhizome/distributed consciousness.  This distribution causes new, inventive experiences/compositions because they were spread among other already existing experiences/compositions.

Burn: (re-)distributing the new material across the network

I’ve been trying to find a good example of creative memory, and this is it!
