Glitch

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

Over the last five years many industrialized economies have been shifting their analogue television networks to digital transmission. This photographic essay captures the accumulated ruin of this transition as it continues to play out on the streets and screens of contemporary Australia. As an artefact of the changeover period, the glitch is rendered both as an ephemeral surge of disordered information and as an excess of redundant technology. Through photography's capacity to hold this infinitesimal blip, the "tiny spark of chance, of the here and now" (Benjamin 1972 [1931], 7) is revealed.
