The LdoD Remix workshop aims to explore multiple creative writing processes, through the partnership between the “Fragments in Practice” and “Operation Room” projects. The project “Fragments in Practice” fosters creative reading and editing practices by means of the virtual manipulation of Fernando Pessoa’s texts in the Book of Disquiet Archive (https://ldod.uc.pt). The “Operation Room” project works creatively through processes of textual appropriation, selection and remixing, making use of text editing, image processing, illustration and video applications. The meeting of these projects aims to encourage the transformation of texts from the Book of Disquiet into new remixed versions, exploring the potential for free creativity of the workshop participants. Come create with us!
