'La La La La (Inside An Empty Room My Inspiration Flows)' takes images "liked" on social media platforms including Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, 4chan, and Reddit over the last ten years by the director as an unconsciously developed archive, and approaches the resulting image bank as both a portrait of the director and the world at large. Set in time with the rapid beat of the Nightcore remix of the ATC song ‘Around The World’ the steady pulse of images feels a bit like an indoctrination video that could have be used by MKultra or in the Ludovico Treatment, portraying a vision of the world defined by humanity's proximity to conflict, technology and precarity.
