Cory Doctorow #FTR – For the Remix
This week we’ve heard all about how Photojournalist Marcus Bleasdale’s collaborates in order to re-imagine his work and reach new audiences via new and unexplored channels, well that’s where we’re headed with this task. After you’ve read Cory and read about Cory you’ll use someone else’s images (mine) to hack,remix and transform into something awesome and for this Alan has rustled up a little space all of its own with some house rules and further instruction.

Remixing Cory sounded like an interesting project; after some initial thought on both the subject and Cory’s books, I liked the idea of having a photo revealing ‘the data’ behind the image. Rather than true data, an ASCII art version of the photograph would be a good representation with Cory’s work already have a history of juxtaposing text and image.
then convert to ASCII art via picascii.com;
