The smooth stream of transformations of the amorphous television screen, which grows with the frame into a new, even larger television set, which again becomes the content of the medium, underlines the image of television as an all-consuming organism that eternally reproduces itself. The hypnotic homage to the media's endless self-reflection is animated by artificial intelligence.

“I have been obsessed with programming since it was introduced to me in the midst of the 90s Finnish demoscene, a UNESCO immaterial world heritage-listed computer subculture. In 2009, I opened a portal to other dimensions in every given JPEG by inventing a pixel-sorting style algorithm as my MFA graduation work. Ever since then, I have been studying variations of it.”
