“I Believe it is a Signal” is an experimental video that reorganizes archived and contemporary news footage through various glitch processes. The structure of the video is organized as a 5-part vignette, each section is a more intense disturbance of the video code, which eventually tears apart the image into a flowing mass of color over time. In the spirit of Nam June Paik's early Wobulator work, this piece uses a pixel abstraction process that bleeds the image over the screen, making the pixels appear to rupture. The forced reorganization and eventual glitching bodyscapes suggests that the monumental authority of broadcast and streaming media is in fact a fragile and impermanent signal.
