”boop-oop-a-doop” is an observation and investigation of our daily life and plays with three different elements : creation of identity, media culture, and our desire to be somebody else. By taking up two
prominent figures in mass media culture, namely Marilyn Monroe and
Betty Boop, it focuses on how these three elements intermingle with
each other, re-enforcing each element each time.

As an icon of the 20th century, Marilyn Monroe has come to represent to us what constitutes an ultimate female with all the qualities desirable for a woman. Her sensualism, sweetness and vulnerability are indeed more alive in our eyes today 40 years after her death. Yet her mannerism so heavily appropriated from Max Fleischer's cartoon creation Betty Boop still reveals one of the most inscrutable questions of our time: the complex nature and procedure in creation of identity, especially in a highly developed media society like ours.
