[ transmission ] (2003)

[transmission] is a prime example of my work (both in real and virtual space) in that its primary conceptual basis concerns the transformation of information driven media into visual aesthetic entities. [transmission] is comprised exclusively from three 9 second broadcast news footage sequences (BBC News24, ITV News, Sky News captured at ~10:30am 09.01.2003) which have been digitized, processed (according to a pre-determined formulaic protocol), and then utilized as the compositional elements. The artwork was then formulated with reference to traditional aesthetic notions and painterly approaches. The title reflects the nature of the work itself - it is a transmission, it is the sending of information (in a form which does not allow for the deciphering of its 'informative' content).
