Computed Archeology: LOOP
Computed Archeology is a meditation on the loop as one of the defining principles of the moving image. The first films were short parts projected over and over again, depicting a simple situation. In the age of the generated and synthetic image, loops became seamless infinite formations lacking a beginning and an end.
Video Computed Archeology is a loop in itself on several levels: it cycles the history of imaging, refers to the illusory nature of each record, creates hyperreal mechanics, and like the first moving images, works with effect. The Möbius strip is a metaphore for perfection, a mechanical machine is the symbol of progression, and the spiral refers to infinity.
