Two Video Errors, MiniDV, 7:11 min, sound, 2022
This video contains unexpected transfer errors in the MIniDV footage I recorded at the Ásmundarsafn in Reykjavík. The metal-evaporated cassette had likely coated the camcorder tapehead with debris that interfered with the transfer.
I performed the editing in-camera using a method I call "Swiss-Cheesing"—randomly scanning back and forth on a tape, dropping new video through old footage.
The title of this 2022 exhibition—Loftskurður—a collaboration between Rósa Gísladóttir and Ásmundur Sveinsson—translates literally to “air cutting” or “spatial Infractions."
