Focusing on the archiving of 'rude' data, each frame in this series of animations is generated by taking a single strip of pixels from an image in the cache of a computer's web browser, and rotating it about a fixed axis.

The process is repeated on each subsequent strip to produce an animation that substitutes an explicit image for something seemingly innocent. The computer oblivious to the perceived corrupting influence of what it's processing.

Supported by New Media Scotland's Alt-w Fund with investment from Creative Scotland.
