Smudge / Work in Progress (2011)

Single channel video 14'31''

Full Description

What seems to be an animation realized using a video effect is simply a screen documentation of Photoshop's Smudge tool working on a found image. In the tradition of appropriation, this video is based on taking a found tool or function within an application and re-purposing it. The work can only exist due to the lag in the tool's working process, a sluggishness that the programers that created the app would love to eliminate.
