Screen #2 is part of a series of screen-printed-paper screens in which the juxtaposition of lined motifs creates a moiré effect, a reference to the effects caused by the tracking function of VHS players. The series Screens explores the nature of electronic interfaces as bodies integrating our behavioural codes, our modes of expression, and our values in technological infrastructures that build our perception of the environment.
