WARNING: This video contains flashing images.

This is an exerpt from the video work 'Memedusa 2021'. The drawing is made up of thousands of repeated memes evoking the repetition of these phrases by my teenaged son towards me in our home after he watched them on You Tube. Documentation of the drawing when complete was used to create a digital assemblage of the pencil drawing as it becomes interwoven with audio taken from memes watched and repeated by my teenaged son, text from Kristeva and an autoethnographic maternal monologue.
