A short experimental built by compressing a personal archive of own and other’s images into one media file. The sequence consists of all the photos found in the images folders of the author’s device at the time (Sept 2020), both private and public content included. The files are pillarboxed into a fragmented “slideshow” video and then databent; i.e. the code of the video is edited to re/deconstruct the video into a colorful and displaced fusion of self and others selves. The video does not progress by a single narrative but in multiple asynchronous happenings, scattered by the deconstructed code of the file, interleaved by both time and space (the sequence is defined by the date the media files were delivered to or created by the origin device, regardless of their original purpose). The whole process is created by CLI software, text-editing and simple processes automation.
