LOSSY RECOLLECTIONS
16mm to digital
link to video

The present moment makes the idea of the digital synonymous wit improvement and permanence. However, encoding and
decoding digital information modifies its object, causing data loss. Dwelling in a celebratory and confounding
place of imperfect transmission and nonlinearity, “Lossy Recollections,” embraces digital regression, using obtuse
compression techniques to generate colorful artifacts. The source materials are excerpts of degraded 16mm film - for
instance, film that has bee left inside rotting compost, or has been bleached away.
