Encryption Keys

At Eastern Bloc, the launch of a new gallery with directors Wade Marynowsky and Nathan Hrebabetzky I made a small series of mobile phone scale videos, designed especially for pre-iphone models.  The Encryption Keys began as a series of 'fate' videos; non-figurative moving imagery which acted as a kind of portable video talisman for phone culture.  Each are a meditation using elements in relation to each other, such as a cluster of dead sticks against a growth of straight sticks in the ground: an animism of everyday objects removed from the chaos of literal vision.  They were selected randomly by numbers so the receiver did not control the image they received.
