Creative outlets of media are found in an array of different forms. Various blog websites (wordpress, blogger), video sharing sites (YouTube, Vimeo) and image sharing sites (flickr, photobucket) that allow anybody to publish whatever material they choose.
The rapid pace with which the aforementioned platforms of creative expression have come into presence has already undergone a slight change or improvement, if you will.
Mixed-media assemblage is when two or more media platforms merge as one. For example, vlogs (video blog), web series (web television) and vooks (books with embedded videos).
Assemblage can also be seen as convergence. The converging of multiple elements, human and non-human, both essential and non-essential to ultimately create a particular form. Omeka, for example is an open source web-publishing platform where users can publish/display archives, libraries, galleries, exhibitions and much more. According to their website Omeka is “a crossroads of web content management, collections management and archival digital collections systems”. Everybody is free to publish material using the features and plug-ins provided by the website.
With connection to Deleuze and Guattari, assemblage forms when two or more systems come together as one network. This fosters creativity and, in turn, opens up a whole other media-fueled experience, whereby individuals can incorporate multiple expressive forms and tools to better convey their opinions/messages/ideas. Using an array of components one isn’t restricted to a limited and enclosed environment of thought.
