Reconstruction of Memory in the Remix Age

Video Experiment, 2017

This is a thesis-related experiment.

By using lemon as the metaphor of memory, the video is aimed to express how we augment, conflate, shuffle, insert, beautify, alter, filter and eventually reconstruct our memories in the remix age. In the form of expression, I combined stop motion with existing video materials from mass media to suggest the relationship between memory and lemon.

The video starts from a small entry point but has a strong power of its own as it constructed a context for people to reflect on our behaviors in a highly digitalized society.
