Using Video/Images

You've already shown that you can find images. But what about making images and video for our project? Is that important, too? The archivist finds materials and reassembles them, but as digital archivists using slightly different tools and approaches available to us, why can't we also construct imagery and video?

We've discussed how the archive is an arrangement of material. The same can be said for making video and images. You find the materials you want, but then you can engage in practices of constructing new images/video out of what you have found. Some terms for this practice are remix or mashup. Put two or more things that weren't together in a state where they are now together, and you have a completely new idea.
