SYNOPSIS:
In the formats of a pop music video, "BE MY CLONE (2013)" fantasizes about electronic devices and digital platforms that contribute to data storage and memory retention. Is the desire to share and preserve a moment through replication (via USB flash drives and cloud devices) overriding the actual experience itself and disrupting one's physical existence?
