Reinterpolation, 2009

While scanning ‘Most Viewed’ YouTube video playing on a computer screen, I use the scanner to interpret the visual representation of moving data into a compressed still image. These images become a chance operation, a still representation of edited time in a moving video. Like accidental collages, parts become recognizable while other parts of the image become fragmented into lines of light. These images become a framework for how we see, as well what topics our society deems worthy of notice. Drawing from the lowest intellectual-brow of media, these fragmenting images are an intended metaphor to the ubiquitous experience of living with digital-cultural-clutter.
