The series Watching TV in Paris started as a few short movies made by filming the TV interference images. That glitch effect was kind of upper layer which was hiding that what was actually on TV. At the time of making those first films, in January 2015, the actual reports on TV programmes were full of uncomfortable and undesirable mood. That reality was “covered” and animated with random custom “impressionist” brush, full of colours and rhythm. Glitched TV images are becoming landscapes full of lavender, poppies, grass, some in the dawn, other in the sunset, full of impressionist atmosphere. In contrast to that, the glitched movies in the installation, force the atmosphere of rush and discomfort.
