The following videos are combined in a series of digital degradation through reconstruction of compressed data by taking the difference of the previous video clip. A short clip is displayed to make a second generation. This second generation is displayed to make a third generation. This simulates lossy data compression where quality is reduced, allowing for quicker exchange.
Instant gratification is a basic desire and becoming a means of social control in our consumer based system. Product waste continues to grow, altering the landscape while we virtually separate ourselves from waste-lands of digital media. Typically destroying the digital image would result in the lack of signal or a blank screen.

These videos, being repetitive, naturally change just as our perception does minute after minute.
