Marta Perez Campos [PCampos]
4’11” Color, Sound, DV, HDV Glitched video
“Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent”. Ludwig Wittgenstein.
Glitch is a term from electronics, meaning a short peak caused by a mistake. Extended, it includes a whole artistic tendency that aestheticizes the visual mistake. The spectator of Marta Campo’s work can only grasp some bits of information, insufficient to understand the presence of a narration even if a seated person, some faces and words are visible.
As the video progresses, accompanied only by the soundtrack, the audience perceives less and less information until the resolution of the mistake.
