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

In Entropic Door, stock computer-generated imagery of a door opening is dubbed repeatedly to tape until it reaches full destruction of the image. Each degradation of the image fills the space of the next open doorway, and so on, before a reversal of the process ensues.

While lending a physicality to a distributed and downloaded Getty Images clip, this image of an opening door stands in for its source of a continually opened and closed file.
