SCAN scAPE video still by Arjan Vanmeenen


Pixelated Ephemera

Solely composed out of re-filmed footage, broadcasted by video chatters, SCANscAPE knits together fragments of fleeting stories once streamed online for an often unknown audience. The “stray” footage is accompanied by sporadic text fragments; cam-chatter and poetry are repeatedly re-translated by computers to make up a Dadaist cut-up. The soundtrack is a collage of mundane sounds, feedback and snippets of live saxophone improvisation (which accompanied a silent premiere) molded into a unique soundscape that allows the viewer to drift into rumination.
