Polina Efremova’s Destruction #ArtTuesday
Loving Polina Efremova’s process! From
Several years ago, Berlin-based documentary and travel photographer Polina Efremova discovered a
unique type of datamosh glitch. The accidental discovery happened when Efremova installed a new video player on a very old PC. When she tried to play her videos on the player, glitches would appear from time to time, which she would eventually capture as screengrabs, turning the glitchy scenes into still photographs. The body of work, which Efremova calls Destruction, displays one way to capture a unique moment that can never again be reproduced.
“What interests me most in the process is that a random faulty configuration of a piece of software leads to results that are uncontrollable, not replicable,” Efremova tells Creators. “That reminds me of analog photography, where a process of film developing is often unpredictable. [And] I love the idea that an old computer that otherwise would have no more use or value serves as a unique tool that cannot be replicated by anyone.”
