Nate Harrison Essay #2: Dreamweaver, Making People Believers Media, in our digital information society, is comprised of the ability to remix it and manipulate it to something else entirely. This, known as ‘Deep Remixability’, is a corner stone for how we create multimedia pieces using one program or two. In this essay, I will be discussing the concept of deep remixability and will be describing the usage and functions present in Dreamweaver and flash and, how when combined, they are a multimedia goldmine. “Media remixability’… constitutes a new fundamental stage in the history of media, (Manovich)” because it incorporates all the functions of digital media including, film, imagery, typography and architecture as well as analog processes. It involves taking all these forms, in their current state, and manipulating them into one multi-media exposé of various different forms of media. One thing about digital remixability is the ability to combine analog versions of media with digital. Through the use of scanning technology and converters, all different sorts of media can be manipulated and worked, in one program (often times two) in order to create a seamless work of art. However, the true appeal of deep remixability comes from the ability to transport these files between various different applications, also known as importing. For instance, you can scan an item into jpeg form on your computer, fully rasterized, and then input it into Photoshop and convert it to either an EPS file or a PDF file and be able to open in Illustrator.
