Do androids see phosphenes? The video 20160815 depicts patterns that androids might interpret as raw liquid crystals. Tina Frank processes imaginations that already have been envisioned in the early years of digital video art – but were not yet realised.
Todays world of images is superimposed by overbearing resolutions suggesting almost crystal clear and flawless images. The windows to the world of images are the glaring displays of our various devices and their LCDs – liquid crystal displays. Allowing the crystals to flow in conjunction with Peter Rehberg’s music, the video 20160815 sparkles like a charming roughness #againstallglossiness.
