About "TV-interferences III" ("Glitch" - paintings)

In our digital television-age via satellites, films and broadcasts are sometimes interrupted by lightning strikes, heavy rain and so on.

Suddenly our films are “decomposed” in different ways, sometimes more, sometimes less or they disappear completely. These extremely short-living masterpieces are the basis for my “TV-interferences III”. These exciting snapshots are ranging from concrete to completely abstract representations.

During zapping between TV-channels, sometimes two “decomposed” films are mixed and thus form completely new visual impressions.

In contrast to the "TV-interferences I" and the "TV-interferences II", the TV-interferences III happen on a digital color TV. This causes other interferences, because the screen layout is different.

My „Glitch“- paintings are real "glitches", that have occurred on my TV screens, which I photographed immediately when these phenomena occurred and then implemented them in painting.

Definition of glitch (media) according to Wikipedia (excerpt): In television and video technology, a glitch is a short-term incorrect output of image or sound content, similar to glitches in electronics. ..... Glitches also occur when interpolating individual data components of the signal that were falsified or omitted during a copying or transmission process. In the image, this results in increased artifact formation or even the formation of blocks of a different color. In the sound, disturbing distortions of the frequency or background noise can occur.
