This series serves as a reminder that the digital age that we know inevitably has a life span, which will one day expire. The use of macabre medical images as a foundation for Glitching works as a homage to the Memento Mori symbolism found across the medieval and Victorian eras.
The series features ‘missing’ pieces of the images in which the original white base layer can be seen. This in turn breaks the digital perfection seen across all forms of digital art and mass media. However, in this case, the Glitch amplifies and exposes the place where all of these things start, a blank canvas. This blankness still exists underneath all digital work - it has just been carefully covered.
Our digital world can be more than a perfectly polished image, and its time is coming to an end.
