Work from his oeuvre.
“The various works consist of a series of experiments made by the artist in the process of digitizing and destroying his archive, in which the materials themselves become the subject of investigation. Included is documentation of the physical storage matter such as printed matter, scratched CDs and DVDs, celluloid, and disassembled electronics. A series of larger format works is based on the mistakes and corruption of data encountered in the transfer between imaging formats. The various works on display outline the process by which the material of the archive were catalogued and destroyed. Using various imaging techniques including microphotography Snyder attempts to identify the underlying decision making process and vocabulary used working with images and their ideological construct.” – Contemporary Art Daily
