Special thanks to cinematographer and producer, Aaron Bourget, for his assistance.

"Through social media platforms where data compression introduces glitches, this ghost in the machine reminds us that no matter how well curated we attempt to present ourselves to the world, there will always imperfection.

Glitches occur in DVD, MP3 and JPG formats when data is compressed and data is lost. However, in it's place can be glitch artifacts such as 'staircasing,' when two different frequency through compression accidentally harmonize, causing a rainbow stripe pattern to pop up.

Using images lifted from YouTube, Skype, DVDs and TV, and inspired by ritual magic and works of literature such as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Atrocity Exhibition, The flip side of the curated self, the feral, frenzied and hypnotized is not unlike the glitches in data."
