Still Image

Entheogen Vignette: 00:01:14:17 is a single piece from a series of 15. The genesis of this abstraction was originally moving image. This light box is a single snap shot taken from a glitch artwork where the original image of X-Rays were pulled and manipulated so much that they became entirely new images. Upon reviewing the original film by individual frames I started to see individual works in each static frame. I then projected these static frames and photographed the projections to translate the moving image back into static. This image has certain Rorschach qualities, where each viewer sees something different in each experience, making it more of a mirror than a mere object. This body of work is a direct result of my background as a VJ. I constantly re-explore my own works by manipulating, remixing and combining them to constantly search for something new. I enjoy the journey of exploring the experimental process of destructing and rebirthing my pieces of video into new forms.
