My media artworks construct a sense of nostalgia through glitch. In both Vivacity (2019) and Demo 1 (2019), I aim to develop ways to communicate a feeling of remembering through the material textures of the video medium. I explore the ‘glitch’ aesthetic that is popular in rap music videos, incorporating the visual effects of VHS to encapsulate a bygone era through an obsolete technology and to project a recorded past that is also fast disappearing.
