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

In Entropic Door, stock computer-generated imagery of a door opening is dubbed repeatedly 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. 

Entropic Door brings materiality to a distributed and downloaded Getty Images clip. This image of an opening door stands as a metaphor for a continually opened and closed file.
