Water Levels: September 22nd (Woodbine Beach) is a video installation that explores relationships between natural and electromagnetic energy. Datamoshing, or what has been commonly referred to as ‘glitch art,’ is used as a conceptual strategy to investigate the change in water levels over a period of time. As a process, datamoshing relies heavily on the digital technologies of today, distorting preconceived ideas of the photographical process and the digital image. By altering the values of a digital file, certain disruptions are caused concerning the way the file is reproduced on screens. It exploits the digital systems, and brings their weakness into perspective. Although the computer cannot make these kinds of mistakes, intervention from the user is what causes the deconstruction to be seen on screen. The ‘glitch’ is the result of hacking into the original file, but this makes the user aware of the physical data structure that comprises the image. Through careful analysis, the user is able to alter the data to achieve a break in circuit. (Woodbine Beach) consists of a single channel video projection, and a series of related images that document the water levels of Lake Ontario. A specific code has been written into the video file that reflects the numeric values which have been documented to keep track of the change in said water levels.  Each distortion, while exploring this aesthetic, is reflective of the time and location in which it was shot.
