“how low can you go” is a series of animated GIF art that ask two questions. How low can you go in resolution & morals.
That is to still connect to the human aspect of the depiction / image. Do we recognize the male or female body within the pixels? What does the movement induce, is it enough to orientate us as to what we are watching? Or is it the flesh tones? What are we watching anyway? Is it porn, is it art and who cares anyway?
We are programmed, hard wired (by our neural network) to react to those colours and patterns of motion and shape, especially when it comes to primitive ‘content’. I have always been interested in exactly that question: how low can you go and degrade a signal, an information, picture, sound, so it is still percievable as such – as structured information. Yet it is that border, the lowest visual/informational signal to noise ratio – that is what facinates me if you will.
