An excerpt from a 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 and enlarged, 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. “The simpless Surrealist act consists of dashing down into the street, pistol in hand, and firing blindly, as fast as you can pull the trigger, into the crowd. “ – Andre Breton.
