This project explores ways that photography and modern image reproduction techniques capture fleeting moments of unintended glitching digital television broadcasting. Rather than allow a glitching screen and poor digital television broadcast to be viewed as an undesirable obstruction to one’s leisurely entertainment, the digital capture project reframes this occurrence as an opportunity for imaginative expansion building upon the tradition of abstraction. Here, these same moments of interruption carry potential for contemplation, joy, and long-form satisfaction.

Parallels between one’s own capacity for memory and imagination are brought into focus. What can these explorations of glitching digital screens reveal about the power of the human mind to complete a disjointed image set before it? Memory and imagination are engaged as we allow our mind to move through the glossy surfaced, multi layered compositions. un-interrupted bridges the physical and digital to reconsider ways that contemporary illusions are features of time and space, holding our whole beings captivated.
