Dirty Pixels (Looking)

Dirty Pixels is an ongoing series of photographs that I have taken of various public video board displays.

With close viewing these displays, which may seem to be an advanced and digitally perfect form of technology for displaying all manner of information, quite often have glitches, malfunctions and other types of distortions which are both distracting and curious to look at.

By taking these undesired effects in to account one can see take these images to a new level as these various imperfections create a new level of viewing completely different from their original message, context and intent. Upon close examination these high tech electronic creations resemble traditional moiré patterns one gets with traditional printing, the very technology these displays were designed to replace.

The images in this series were shot in Times Square, NY and Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA
