A persistence of video-card failures captured before the crash. These digital offcuts – self-sufficient, abstract authors – inform themselves and lead their own narrative. Their pixels plotted in MIDI return a soundtrack and editing rhythm for 16 by 9 slices. Watch the film here.<\/p>\n <\/div>\r\n \r\n <\/div>\r\n<\/div>
