A Story of Now (2016)" explores the hypermediacy in ’readymade’ video and photo effects on smartphones. The video is compiled of shorter clips shot and filtered through popular photo/messenger apps such as Snapchat, Instagram, MSQRD, and Snow from 2015 to 2016. Each video clip from varying times, spaces and contexts have been fabricated into a “how-to-be-successful” life-coach video tutorial.
