for Unlimited Limited, 720p video, 2018
This project was a response to a studio brief (Unlimited Limited) which called to produce work that investigated ideas of personalisation. Untitled
is centred around how the development of the Internet has created a space where opposing ideas of 'personal' and 'impersonal' exist closely. The first part of the project examines online content that applies templates or conventions in order to seem individualised for each user, but are ultimately created to be mass-consumed.
