_SPRINTERS_2009

_Sprinters is a video piece which shows the results of a formal investigation about the behaviour of digital data when it is subjected to several processes of repetition. The piece studies the loss and generation of new information, reflected by the pixels which form the frames once the video is fed into a loop of playback and recording procedures. The work shows the autonomy of digital data and how it can evolve altering the original aesthetics and discourse of the video by modifying its visual and narrative qualities. The video shows two athletes training under the instructions of an anonymous voice who forces them to repeat an excercise over and over again. At that point, the image and the sound go back to the beginning, gradually wearing out until they become an indecipherable cloud of audiovisual information.
