In DV all you have to work with are pixels, but in processing these dots, all sorts of things can happen that reveal their microscopic relation to the whole.
Compression artifacts are a hazard when working with any kind of digital feedback (just as with analog video) your “signal” can quickly degrade into a grid of blocks, related to the pixels they contain, and at the same time strangely independent of them. Suggesting a kind of blocky relationship between the minute (the pixel) and the shape of the screen itself.
This seems to be a way to get the real world outside the digital medium to play some role in the imaging produced through purely digital methods.
More on this later....
