Motion and motionlessness are coexist in video STATIC. The screen transmitting the ‘noise’ of pixels moving across its surface. Tiny parts that are reminiscent of tele-snow move and then halt, creating two impressions: that of a completely flat and abstract freeze frame of a television screen or that of an actual landscape with depth, which appears as soon as the pixels start moving. The word ‘static’ was chosen as a work title because it likewise has a double meaning: it is the physical state of immobility and absence of change, as well as ‘white noise’ — the arbitrary flickering pixel pattern which appears onscreen whenever there is no signal.
