Sketches: Xerox Drawings

'Drawings' generated on a photocopier. Sketches for future works exploring visual interference and drawing processes.

Research: Visual Interference

Found images of TV static, research for new work concerning examples of 'visual interference'.

Television is a gift of God, and God will hold those who utilize his divine instrument accountable to him -- Philo T. Farnsworth, the inventor of the modern television.

Noise in analogue video and television is perceived as a random dot pattern which is superimposed on the picture as a result of electronic noise and radiated electromagnetic noise picked up by the receiver's antenna. Due to the algorithmic functioning of a digital television set's electronic circuitry and the inherent quantization of its screen, the 'snow' seen on digital TV is less random.
