9: Remix Project

My remix project can be viewed at https://carolinehmiller.wixsite.com/poetryremix

For this project, I chose to remix several of my own poems into an annotated hypertext format that would allow readers to view the media that had influenced me while writing each poem along with notes on my writing process. It was aimed at a hypothetical audience of both other poets and people who are interested in remix. I wanted to provide insight into the writing process–or at least, my specific writing process–and also demonstrate the ways in which even conventional pieces of writing that aren’t obviously “remixes” take bits and pieces from other works and bring them together. Having the project on a web page would make it easy to circulate via social media by sharing a link; the audience could discuss the website on those social media platforms, although I wish I had been able to make the website itself more interactive.
