Distorted memories from an
imaginative zone known as “Oneiria”.

In our high-tech world, unpredictable behaviour from
technology is often perceived as negative. These glitches
however – ‘the ghost in the machine’ – can be a starting
point to expand the possibilities of image production in
the digital age. Oneiria uses datamoshing, a technique
in which digital video images are deliberately made
unstable, and found footage in different formats (digital
HD, VHS, Super 8, …) is literally used as paint, smearing
images to create painterly, abstract, dreamlike landscapes.

Full version contains sounds from the
database, from users Raymonster, Jovica, Speedenza,
ERH, ReadeOnly, Klankbeeld, Timbre, Cognito Perceptu.
