An examination of the filters set in place between audience and media, and their subsequent decay.
I began the project only knowing that the original subject I wanted to film was a screen. I then began the process of developing a structure to build the piece around. I wanted the video to mimic the ‘screening’ or ‘filtering’ that occurs in the process of creating a video for viewer consumption, i.e. light filtering through camera lens, processing data on chip, being transferred into digital format, etc. I then filmed seemingly random views of the TV, and imported them onto the PC. In order to remove my control over the output, I then began the process of degrading the footage by corrupting the data through encoding in different video codecs and subsequently removing the I-Frames of the clips. I then broadcast this footage back onto the LCD screen and filmed it again. I used this footage in the final sequence, and repeated the same sequence of clips, but I corrupted the same footage slightly more every run, so the final product essentially became an examination of the LCD screen becoming what is being projected on the LCD screen.
