The Comixed: Enhanced Conversation

Let the conversation begin

During the FutureEverything Festival on the 15th May 2010. Comixed: Enhanced took place at the Contact Theatre as part of the PlayEverything event.

A cyber-scientist, a cosmologist and a futurologist all put forward provocations to stimulate the audience into a conversation around issues revolving around the enhancement of our bodies. The debates where captured by a variety of means, video, photography and using social media.

We invite you to explore the debates and join in the conversation. If you would also like to produce further content, tweet, or remix what is found here feel free and tag it with the #cmxd hashtag.

Comixed: Enhanced – The Remix

Comixed: Enhanced – The Remix from Manchester Beacon on Vimeo.

Artists Richard Ramchurn and Mauro Camel ran video remix workshops with people who had been participated in Comixed: Enhanced. The object of the workshops were for people to re-interpret, mash-up and reconfigure the content that was captured through the Comixed: Enhanced event. As well as introducing people to video mashups, some of the examples can be seen in our last post, they created a mashup of their own. Enjoy.
