ARTIST STATEMENT: My work plays with and off of the manifestation of video in our networked culture: compressed, pixelated, glitched, degraded, small, sharable, decontextualized and in many cases illegally distributed. I endeavor to reproduce not only the look and feel of video on the Internet in my work but also the process through which we search for the videos we are looking for, oftentimes finding things that are not quite what we wanted, but a likely result based on the imprecise algorithms of search engines and user error. My pieces take source material that have common themes, imagery, keywords or even color palettes and layer them over top of each other, allowing them to ebb and flow, distort and obscure, and produce something entirely new or different out of their parity and their difference. I take inspiration from Soviet Montage Theory and Christian Metz’s theory of film as a language to create works that elicit new meaning and imagery from the juxtaposition of existing sources. Jeremy Blake I try to communicate that excitement and joy in my work through playfulness, humor and, at times, imagery associated with children and adolescence. The mutability of the medium allows me to pursue many different avenues at once. A piece will oftentimes start as a film and wind up as a gif or it may be cannibalized, with individual parts coming back again in another project as an additional layer or segment. I believe that the radical potential of the pixel has suffused the medium of video with a mercurial and limitless nature that excites me more than any other art form can.
