The series "A Mundane Experience" is a multimedia project that Stamper has undertaken in his ongoing exploration into social media and the internet. This project explores the interaction of still and moving imagery being published by social media users through the use of photo animation while questioning the notion of escapism presented through the constructed narrative that depicted as a form of documentation. Stamper had documented his daily life throughout the COVID-19 lockdown and combined it with audio taken from news media outlets to convey the effects of this cultural phenomenon and how digital media has become the window to the world.
