Shattered Holes


Shattered Black Hole





Shattered White Hole






After analysing the aesthetic of glitching video’s, and researching the essentials of the videoscreen further, I started creating the “Shattered Hole” series. In the videos, a mass seems to grow in one of the videos, and draw in during the other. With each sort of movements, pixels are created in the black “zero-point” of the screen, emphasising the essential part of video: pixels, which give out color and show movement.


The nuanced movement, which is hard to pick up on, and the darkness of the screen, led me to title the videos “Black Hole” and “White Hole”, with the idea that each phenomena tore the black screen or space of the video, revealing the different frequencies which make up the basis of video.
