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.
