Kate Sloan - =What is Happening? 2010
For this video, Kate Sloan used twitter as a tool to collect social data. In this case, she was interested in what
students wrote on twitter during finals week. She saw an interesting contradiction in the fact that students
complained about the lack of sleep, and stress of finals, but also managed to find the time to constantly post
on twitter. After the data was gathered, Kate scanned old Biology books and created a diorama, which was
photographed to create a stop motion animation.
