I’ve been banging on about digital video re-mix (or mash-ups) being the future of language for nearly 7 years now. Last week I had the pleasure of attending the opening party for visionation – film maker Ron Furner’s new adventure. Ron’s ‘a message from KOLTON’ video was screened, leaving the words ‘Screen Language’ bouncing around my little brain.
Nice to know I’m not the only one ‘out there’ with strong views about the importance of digital video in the evolution of language. I wish Visionation, Ron and his partners & projects every success as they chart a course through these un-chartered waters.
I’d love to see a re-mix of my old ‘Can video remix enable a new language for transdisciplinary science?’ video mashup – which is a playful exploration of the concept of Screen Language as applied to the scientific literature. Any takers?
p.s. Ron, if you can’t get Path working on your iPhone – here is a tumblr archive of my little launch party gift (that put visionation into FourSquare, published & shared my quick and dirty iPhone video in less than one minute total).
