[ISEA2015] Artist Statement: Karla Brunet — Thalassoglitch

Artist Statement

Projection (2015)

ThalassoGlitch is a selection of glitch images of the sea. While mostly underwater photographs, they represent a mixture of nature, water and noise interference. Brunet uses the metaphor of sound, applying different effects such as echo, repeat, phaser, pitch, invert, speed, profile, noise removal, amplify, reverse, equalizer, leveller, click removal, BassBoost and normalize. The 20 photographs in the series portray a decaying and adulterated sea, a slideshow of corrupted files.
