Sharing is Caring (2012)" highlights social media platforms (i.e. Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter) that encourage individuals to excessively share personal stories within virtual communities. Presented in the formats of a pop music video, I remixed found-gifs into visual backdrops and news-feed stories into lyrics. Speculating the ever-evolving relationships of individuals online, I wanted to capture the essence of modern human interactions. Hence, "Re-post, re-blog, re-cycle your share."
