Social media are influencing social behavior and consumerism as they are parts of our lives. Pop culture categorizes everything from viral videos to socio-political sarcasm. The proliferation of social media has led to Internet memes spreading very quickly and reaching more people. Internet memes are objects of interest on the Internet that are passed around in a memetic manner. This project is based on internet memmes and the concept of ‘Filter bubble’ as Eli Pariser first named and who is also the person that analyzed the ‘personal ecosystem’, in which the viewers through ‘cookies’ and memes are isolating . This project is a comment on how our online experience is becoming statistic. How the viewers became ‘the product’.
