I follow the news every single day, sorting through the proliferation of images from news websites and social networks like Facebook. The result is an archive of screenshots and images compiled from Middle Eastern conflicts, the streets of Tehran, newspapers headlines, and even footage from World War II.
Through this conflation of content and source, I feel that the media is “under surveillance” in my studio. These acts provide the possibility of investigating the role of images. In particular, I am concerned with understanding the way that images are propagated through mass media, the power that they come to have and their tremendous effects.
in this series, I am interested in the aesthetic aspects of errors and glitches as a form of disruption which can trigger critical ideas about visual perception. The malfunction causes me to question the process of perception and how do we consume images.
