Remix Revisited: Critical Solidarity in Youth Media Arts
Jocson, Korina M.
E-Learning and Digital Media, v10 n1 p68-82 2013
This article explores youth making media across genre practices. The author begins with a discussion of youth media arts, followed by a discussion of remix in the digital era. An exemplary video poem project from the San Francisco Bay Area is described to illustrate the importance of critical solidarity among youth. The multimodal design, production and distribution of "Slip of the Tongue" suggest the potential of youth filmmaking to reach a worldwide audience through event screenings, film festivals, personal websites and social media sites. A close analysis of the video poem made by a 16-year-old Chinese American high school student brings to light a variety of stylistic choices that render youth-made films not only a product of identity, but also a form of social critique and action. Finally, the author discusses practical implications of critical solidarity for educators and youth advocates around the globe. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
