Untitled (Loss)
An experimental video that reinterprets a past project to better fit within the self-imposed theme of loss. Last year I lost my grandmothers and grandfather to old age and health complications. They were the catalyst for this project, and now I want to commemorate them, especially my grandmother Lala. In the past, I interviewed her and used the voiceover in a video with an assortment of clips I took on my trip to Mexico to help tell her stories. Now I am reinterpreting the project to fit the theme of loss by using datamosh and other techniques scattered throughout the video to intentionally lose data. This will cause distorted visuals and other obstructions to lose the video, such as how I lost my grandmother.
