Excerpt (2008)

An excerpt out of a rapid flow of Internet video news: a family is hiding behind a wall in a neighborhood that turned into a war zone. The compressed video is slowed down, enlarged, and accompanied by a new soundscape, revealing additional dimensions in the scene. The image is transformed into a psychedelic landscape, creating a troubling contrast between imagery and content, leading to an uneasy affect: anxiety deconstructed into pixels.
