HITRECORD:  HITRECORD is an online artists’ collaboratory.  All original records (text, artwork, video, music… er… knitting…) contributed by the Recorders become part of the great collection of resources that can be used and remixed by the community as a whole.  The site features hundreds of collaborations that seek to harness and direct the creative energy of the community.  The collaboratory has released two books and some short films that have been screened at the Sundance Film Festival.  The site director, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (RegularJOE), also hosts “HITRECORD at the Movies” screenings all over the world.  It’s dynamic.  It’s art as perpetual motion machine.  It’s my favourite place to hang out.  And it’s the inspiration for your REMIX Assignment.  And the best part?  You can join!  Clicky clicky.

Here are some links to the records we looked at from hitRECord on Sept. 20.  These and others are also available in the PPT presentation linked on the “Power Points” page of this blog.
