In this project, I used Adobe Premiere to make a collage of short clips getting from YouTube to tell a story about what is identity to me. It is a story about everyone who lives in the era with technology. The montage in the beginning illustrates people getting upset by the social media and the increasing amount of trash revealing the issue of our current culture. The trash symbolizes the broken and neglected relationships. I discovered it has become a social norm to blame the issues on technology while we are the narrators for our lives. The people with the masks represent the society norm. The society norm which gives the social media with a negative connotation.  The technology, just like any other forms of beings that have already existed, drives the development of social structures and culture values. The downward spiral of negativities on technology has got me to think what are ways to use technology to resume the relationships just like recycle the trash and rebuild them into instruments. The prime of living in a  technology world is that it gives the chances and possibilities. The angel in the video is everyone that has been given a privileged life. Therefore, their lives are given with a purpose that is to use their fate(technology) to build the connection for those who are deprived and make their lives better.
