“A few years ago I was sitting at my computer watching a digital movie. The film played and played and all of a sudden, in a split second, the image faltered. An error occurred. Then the playback continued. That error fascinated me. What had I just seen? I successfully started looking for ways to reproduce and capture this error. Thus I got the chance and the time to quietly observe this deviation. What I saw made my heart beat faster. I saw lines and colors in a color combination I couldn’t possibly create myself. I loved it! To me this was not an error, this was a digital abstract work of art.”
