Am I pretty?” When asked online, this banal question opens up a loop of found- footage videos uploaded by teenagers all over the world on the internet. Though the identical dramaturgy of dozens of these videos put together seems amusing at first sight, it intensifies the impression of a deeply alienated mode of self-exposition defined by the specific aesthetics of tutorials, online diaries and confessional videos. While repetitive in genre codes, this mash-up is no longer the representation of individual stories, but gives a condensed picture of current practices of self-exposition, juvenile insecurity and the need for permanent recognition in the Web 2.0.
