It is known that monsters reflect cultural fears. My works were inspired by internet folklore/creation legends, particulary of memes and monsters, and how they permeate and evolve throughout digital culture and media. Digital monsters and myths, such as Slenderman and Momo are created by the Internet. Fake youtube videos, photoshops, and “historical photography,” created by omni-present authors fuel and evolve their dynamic internet folklore. And I am interested in how the internet is an ubiquitous, borderless and ever-evolving reproduction unit. But also, how these ideas have spurred strange and obscure digital monsters and myths.
