multi-channel virtual video installation w/ audio, 1 min 28 sec
Views was produced while at Momo Studio Residency in Wuxi, China. In the same vein as, Is This Meme Art , Views uses video that is considered by the artist to be “digital garbage”. The artist used live-streaming apps such as Inke as well as video stories from wechat, instagram, and snapchat feeds. The sound for the video was created by sampling over-compressed audio from viral videos and video memes. Finally, the artist takes these videos and renders them in a virtual space to emulate the neural response of dopamine feedback loops while being engaged with social media.
