Can we escape our digital lives?

Content Anxiety is a video collage which uses audio appropriated from anonymous teenagers’ ‘Why I Quit YouTube’ videos. It expresses the paradoxes of making, in an era of perpetual storage, content overload and self-branding.


ABOUT THE ARTIST

Duncan Poulton uses digital video and image assemblage to address ideas of simulation, copying and circulation, in an increasingly virtual world.
