Blog Remixes, (2004 – Present):

Since 2004 I have been using the blog as an art medium. My practice is directly informed by my research on Remix. Above is a link to three blogs that put into practice what I define as the selective remix.


Research on Remix and Cultural Analytics: Three Case Studies on Youtube Video Mashups

2010-12 Post-doctoral research for The Department of Information Science and Media Studies at the University of Bergen, Norway.




January 2010

[Re]Cuts was specifically developed for an exhibition at IMT Gallery in London, inspired by Burroughs’s experimentation with tape recordings. The exhibit takes place in May 2010. I thank Mark Jackson for the invitation and the opportunity to exhibit my work.

[Re]Cuts is a remix of image, sound, and text inspired by William Burroughs’s aesthetics of tape recording. The video is also influenced by his cut-up method as defined for writing in “The Cut-Up Method of Brion Gysin.” The video does not follow the strict cup-up rules professed by Burroughs, but rather considers his aesthetics as a point of reference to develop a non-sensical narrative.

Parts One and Two of Re*- Lecture: “Remix[ing]. The Three Chronological Stages of Sampling” by Eduardo Navas

The following is a presentation separated into two parts; it was produced for the conference Re*-Recycling_Sampling_Jamming, which took place in Berlin during February 2009.

Part One: Remix[ing]. The Three Chronological Stages of Sampling

Part One (above) introduces the three chronological stages of Remix, while part two (below) defines how the three chronological stages are linked to the concept of Authorship, as defined by Roland Barthes and Michel Foucault.  Also see my previous entry “The Author Function in Remix” which is a written excerpt of the theory proposed in part two.

Part Two: Remix[ing]. The Three Chronological Stages of Sampling

See the original entry, posted on March 26, 2010.  Material was originally produced for the Conference Re*, which took place on February 2009, in Berlin, Germany.

With the support of CRCA at Cal-IT2 and my research in the Art And Art History Program at UCSD, I conceptualized a series of projects exploring (but not limited to) the creative possibilities of video and sound with emerging technologies such as 4K.

Currently working with Vectors Journal to develop an online theoretical project focusing on Remix and Noise, to be released in 2008 for their issue titled Noise (vol. 4 no. 2).
