Funhouse, 2015, 5m28sec
A Getty Images grotesque, created through direct manipulation of the television tube.
Stock footage of five "morphing" images evolving from infant to elderly are staggered through electronic manipulation of the TV signal itself. Interlaced video images created with a raster display scan from left to right in two interlocking fields.
In Funhouse, an alteration of the X, Y and Z axis of the image via electronic manipulation of the TV tube creates a "mutation" in this electronic lifespan of the signal. Funhouse pairs this process with stock footage marketed as a "picture of aging", creating grotesque combinations of organic and inorganic.
