distorted mediums, uncanny gestures

A process of exhaustion created over the initial picture, damages its first appearance – the process itself consisting of overlapped recordings and series of signal transfers between different apparatuses and technologies (VHS, computer, mini DV, Hi 8 and photography). Here the information is lost gradually between media, video cards, monitoring, LCD displays or in the simple relation between atmospheres, light, lenses and photo sensible surfaces in a way where the symbols are codified, interpreted and successively re-codified and re-interpreted, losing the qualities that formerly made them recognizable, operative and transforming them in something other by uncovering its raw matter.
