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

photographed to create a stop motion animation.
