Utopia

who watches the watchmen?

For this video, I tried to do an Anonymous-esque video that imo turned out to be more like a John Oliver segment. After many hours of working with making my own filter (I experimented with gifs and faces of people involved in hacking and the digital world), I settled with a smiley face on which I could project different things depending on what I was talking about. After choosing my filter, I decided to embrace the color yellow throughout the video. My goal was to reflect on the consequences of pouring more of ourselves into the digital world while pointing out that we can change this if we pressure those in power hard enough.
