"Boop-oop-a-doop" is an observation and investigation of our daily life and plays with 3 different elements: creation of identity, media culture, and our own desire to be somebody else. By taking up two prominent figures in mass media culture, namely Marilyn Monroe and Betty Boop, the work focuses on how these three elements intermingle with one another, re-enforcing each element each time.
Combining analogue and digital video techniques, "Boop-oop-a-doop" displays complex imagery in which such historical video synthesizers as Paik-Abe's Wobulator, Jones' Colorizer and FairLight are traceable.
