For years we were taught to analyse signals and audiovisual objects, films and tapes, define, search and catalog, categorise things, now it is finally time to take care of the noise. Let’s think about what was once called “static”.
We are swimming in an ocean of video. What might look as bluish noise and dust from the far outside, might embed beautiful and fascinating living scapes of moving images, objects constantly changing, re-arranging, assembling, evolving, collapsing, but never disappearing, a real cinema.
