Entropic Door, 2013, single channel video, 49sec loop

Stock CGI footage of a door opening is dubbed twelve times to tape until it reaches full destruction of the image. Each generation shows the next filling the space of the open doorway, and so on. The clip is then reversed so as to invert the process and reconstruct the original door.

Despite the material focus of repeated dubbing of video tape; the content itself is certainly immaterial... Not just as literal data, but in its conflicted states of a very "CGI-ness", simulating reality while failing to appear real. Its immateriality is further enforced by its distribution as stock footage. This "door" is a stand in for (and yet still is) a file itself, designed to be opened and closed and opened and closed ad infinitum until deletion.
