These photos capture the moment of data breakdown, the instant the information becomes fragmented, a metaphor for our post-truth age where science, facts and reality are manipulated and purposely distorted to create confusion, doubt and fake news.  These abstractions represent a new narrative, one equally if not more powerful than the original.

The GLITCH photos are the result of transmission failure rather than any purposeful distortion; using magnets or software. Most of the images were gathered via network broadcasts, much of the subject matter is news, entertainment, weather and sports, our daily bread. I decided to forego the entertainment / celebrity portion of the images and concentrate on the formal qualities of the image; pattern, color and identity… or lack thereof.

This selection of eighteen images comes from a source material of almost 400 images. I hope you feel as compelled as I do by these images, the abstract nuisance and data breakdown, a metaphor for our current immersive state of corruption and instability.
