The digital image isn't finite, the information saved in binary language is perpetually inscribed in the archive and the pixels maintain the established order without mutations. Instead, photographs that our parents filmed in super 8 suffered a chemical degradation process that removes the stills over time. The mechanism of human memory works the same way as a chemical film. Memories become partial, clear and mix so that they acquire different nuances. However, the machine is not able to create and rewrite its archives in a synaesthetic key as the memory does. This piece works on the digital image file in terms of sound to grant a "random" factor in the arrangement of pixels, thus giving it a more human behavior. This deteriorates the established digital information and carries out a process that, without human intervention, the machine alone would never be able to elaborate.
