In this chapter, I will discuss Occupy/Band Aid Mashup, a work I produced as part of a series of three critical remix videos in 2011. I will describe the context that led to the concept and creation of this piece, as well as my political and aesthetic intentions and the reasons informing my choice of subject matter. Finally, I will contextualize this work within the field of remix and video art and relate it to my own remix practice over the past decade, as well as my ongoing research in visual culture, focusing on critical remix.
