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.

这是一个基于毕业论题的影像实验。

在影片中,我将柠檬作为记忆的载体,通过一系列行为的类比,试图探讨我们在高度数字化的今天,是如何对记忆进行扩充、混合、排列、镶嵌、修饰、编辑和过滤,以及最终完成对记忆的重构。在表现形式上,我制作了黏土定格动画,再和大众媒体传播的视频资源进行平行剪辑,以展现本体和喻体间有趣的关联性。

这是一个很小的切入点,但我希望它能带来一个新的视角,让观看者重新审视我们的日常,我们在日常中的行为,和这些行为背后的意义。
