i think my computer is haunted

i think my computer is haunted was conceived as a ghost story of the digital age. It is an abstract animation exploring the strange relationship a person questioning their identity has with the internet; this tool for intimate self-exploration has the simultaneous potential of altering one’s perception of the self and reality. The internet offers everyone the opportunity to explore the darkest aspects of humanity, and often shows us jarring imagery regardless of consent. Many of my generation can share life-changing moments that begin and end with a loading screen. Are we culpable for the things we witness? How may it change the way we view ourselves?
