  • Linear rotational motion can induce a fascinating sense of hypnotism by it’s repetitive nature, demonstrated in Marcel Du Champ’s Anemic Cinema. The rotational movement in CD players and it’s skipping nature from damaged discs is a form of glitch. A loose overarching abstract narrative forms the structure of the piece inspired by surrealism with non-sequitur elements. The Apollo bust can be said to be the protagonist of the piece. The increasingly distorted, glitched VHS visuals intend to express a form of dystopian, degenerate state. Heavy use of phasers, flangers, panning create a sonic sense of circular motion. *Visual content shot on VHS tape
