Voice over… In the tent of origin… the parapraxes of machine error with image by-products the nosology of capstan servo mechanisms processes of fast spooling, desynchronizing, derouting, (la déroute du signal), bugging… The drop out (lack of information) becomes the pixel (unit of information) this machine play contextualized the key, line and field blanking, black lift etc.. (David Larcher)
