Remix is a method for music recreation: have adding, removal, replacement and reconstruction and do other operations for various elements in music works; there is always some amazing, subtle and even remaining correspondence between new works and old works. Here, we use the method of remix to respond to the naturally generated overlapping form in city development—the existed rules, orders and textures are being broken continuously and various new ecologies are being produced and mixing together with original foundations. Our city is just experiencing remix every day, either slowly or fast.
can view the city as a garden or ecology of a certain format, including economy, politics, culture, and other different aspects. Urbanization is a process of continuous formatting. Various unpredictable format update within the system is updating various plates and fractures appears on various dimensions: time fracture, memory fracture, culture fracture…However, among them, format relics of different age are left, just like a archaeological site of different ages.
We try to remix city form through art remix. The works are presented without isolation, but implanted in or overlapped on large space layout. We view the whole city as a non-traditional garden, a large but abstract space work. However, the appearance of single or series of works just becomes the specific elements in the remix garden. For example, rockery, flowers and grasses, bridges, pavilions and other general existences just form a scenery system with time and space leaping, while the visitors just walk through it and the scenery changes while the visitors walk on.
