Ships in Distress in a Datastorm

video painting, color, 1.4:1, silent, BE, 2014, 1'00"

A datamoshed remix of Peter Monamy's painting 'Ships in Distress in a Storm'. Through this datamanipulation, the textures of the sea and clouds in the original painting become animated and transform the work into a new abstract compressionist video painting.
