Artist Statement


My main concern is how different technologies can affect contemporary aesthetics.
Analog signals of Broadcast TV signals, VHS video tapes and photographic film are not as clean as digital; it is this unique property that I am interested in. Irregularities and glitches show up in the forgotten technology of analog media; highlighting these errors and mistakes can show the hidden aesthetics of video and film and tape
Aspects such as flickering, vertical rolls and RGB colour can intensify the viewer’s perception. Failure of the technology and the machine become a prominent aesthetic. Glitches can be visually quite complex; they follow patterns, have repetition and please the eye with harmonious colours.
Superseded technologies become appreciated not for their actual function but for the pleasure of experiencing them.
