White Noise_01.mov

With the introduction of digital television and the obsolescence of VHS, white noise will soon be a thing of the past. These random flicking dots some call ants or snow are made up of (1%) microwaves leftover from the big bang. This wall of flickering was once a symbol of nothing in a living room, a loud sounding wall of flickering that usually meant the signal had dropped out or wind had blown the television antenna. 

By slowing down the white noise you see beautiful patters and movement, similar to water moving in the ocean. Rather than waiting for the picture to come on I ask the viewer to enjoy the moment.

This is an excerpt from a 20 minute film, accompanying this film is a series of drawings on paper.
