REFF. The reinvention of the real through critical practices of remix, mash-up, re-contextualization, reenactment

Foreword by: Bruce Sterling

Published by DeriveApprodi & FakePress

From the foreword, by Bruce Sterling:

“Right now, the behaviors and activities commemorated in this book are bizarre. Very. They are so peculiar that they are inherently difficult to describe, because they come from the outer reaches of an emergent network-culture.

I could write an entire book about these ideas and practices, a book that would be science fiction, architecture fiction, design fiction, a technical manual and also a manifesto for network economics. That book would be rather like this book, only less entertaining.”
