Ethereal lo-fi audio-visual video exploring the process and experience of feedback. Sound and visuals created exclusively through analogue electronic feedback techniques & experimentation. The process of creating both audio and video feedback involves ‘creating without intent’ in the early stages. Both visually and audibly, the results from feeding back is driven and affected by inputs such as reflections of light, movement and minuscule anomalies in the environment that then repeat, distort and merge to create new shapes and sounds, some more easily manipulated than others. These continual mutations from fragments of visual truth become unrepresentative of the original image or sound once the moment of capture has passed and we are left with the residue, a warped impression from the past. I see my work as a tangible reflection of the ceaseless updating relationship we have with ‘images’ of experience matter; like our ideologies, people, nature and our environment, whose data is processed through our own feedback system. Our relationship with this entity is just that, an image, not a true representation.
