Mark Amerika’s latest experimental publication is Creative Evolution: natural selection and the urge to remix. The work is part of the new “Living Books About Life” series of titles published by the Open Humanities Press in conjunction with Coventry University and sponsored by the JISC in the United Kingdom.
The freely accessible, multimedia “book” is open to being remixed and opens with the words:
The concept of novelty or more specifically
novelty generation as the modus operandi of
all living creatures mutating in the remix pool
relates to current trends in networked art
where the artist-as-medium postproduces
the Source Material Everywhere
as part of a larger co-poietic unfolding
inside the networked space of flows
