Today’s Daily Create challenges participants to make a FitBit type device to measure something that would not usually be measured. My suggestion is a remixometer – a way of measuring the amount of originality, ingenuity … whatever property or quality we think we might measure when we look at the various remixes that we see. This is the one that I submitted – the scale left open for the reader to decide (my scale is from ‘copy’ at the red side to ‘remix’ on the green side).
This remixometer is inspired by Austin Kleon’s Steal like an Artist, and when I flicked through that book again to write this post I realised that I was probably basing my remix on something like this
Which is why an earlier version of my remixometer had these values
Still a work in progress.
