BE MY CLONE' is a continuation of Laura Hyunjhee Kim's exploration in the various modes of communication. Presented in the formats of a music video, Kim appropriates the tropes of popular culture – the abstraction of words and imagery through repetition. The piece in particular realizes the contemporary obsession over storing data and retaining memory. Transferred through USB flash drives and cloud devices, the desire to share a moment through replicating data often overrides truly enjoying the experience itself and preserving authenticity.
