A fantastic experimental project by Los Angeles-based media artist Dalena Tran. Set to music by Ash Koosha, “Incomplete” pays homage to what artist and media theorist Hito Steyerl referred to as the ‘poor image.’ That is, an image which is collected, copied and processed to the point of disorientation and anonymity. The image is not one but consists of many while still maintaining a contour of coherency. We’ve seen a lot of people experimenting with Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) but the visuals with the music here feel quite poetic almost spiritual. As Tran explains:

“This audiovisual project is a reverie of an increasingly virtualized world that is submerged into a constant flow of information and disparate impressions that takes shape as a rupture in linear time and slow-burning anxieties. Comprised of a single take, the camera follows anonymous bodies in perpetual free-fall; moving through an endless choreography of updating images that reflect a world in constant change.”
