Travels in Intertextuality aims for what John Berger would call "ways of seeing" digital media artifacts and interacting cultural texts. Using Lev Manovich’s Language of New Media, these "new media objects" are seen through the metaphorical "coordinated set of lenses" of Michael Cole’s Cultural Psychology. In addressing issues of "writing" and identity in the digital age at the intersection of technology, art, and commerce, this highly exploratory work looks for ways to perceive "value" in remix culture through ecological models of sociocultural systems. The thesis "follows the problem" of remix through "pioneering research", "reflective practice", and shifting contexts for expansive learning. Emerging from significant pools of digital media, "remix value" is analysed through cultural-historical perspectives, as well as through the autopoietic perspectives of "self-making" biological and sociolinguistic systems.
