Sleepwalk

video, 2010

A composite video based on dream fragments reconstituted via descriptive keyword searches in a then 5-yr-old YouTube, tapping on it as a nascent communal consciousness. 

Recollected dreams were described in keywords then used as Youtube search words. Each selected video was re-filmed with a pre-touchscreen handphone camera to further distort it and render it monochromatic or negative. These re-filmed clips were interspersed with others filmed from actual environments. They play simultaneously, forming an overall image composed of tiny vignettes.
