According to Moutenot, “viewers can see anything from the Grammy’s interspersed with real time commentary to first-hand videos of revolutions in Venezuela and Ukraine.” The creator’s original inspiration was his friend and musician Jamie Lidell, who wondered about the possibility of a live-stream of music video-like content created by fans. Moutenot explored the concept and found that the real-time information he was getting turned out to be very interesting.
Into The Static gives viewers a glimpse into the cultures and experiences of Instagram users and what they like to post about.
