time stretched (transmissions of noise expanded)

Resonating with the essay ‘Sorties into Popular Culture’ (Mallinder, 2013), this work seeks to draw out the affective charge of moments of noise found within mainstream cultural artefacts. The video captures split-second moments of sonic and visual noise, and using rudimentary video editing tools, extends them to the duration of the 3 minute pop song. How do these moments of non-meaning work to enlarge the meaning of the works - and the scope of the channels in which they are embedded? How does our rationalisation of cultural artefacts alter when faced with signals outside rational determination?
