Sullen Entropy, 2017, Video (6 minutes 11 seconds).
I’ve appropriated text from a Facebook page for victims of Huntington’s disease, their families and caregivers. The stories they share on these pages are sometimes mundane but occasionally harrowing because of the traumatic experiences and terrifying unpredictability of the HD sufferer who frequently can’t control their temper and violent outbursts. I leave these posts with their sloppy spelling, poor grammar and other marks of emotional and physical haste. I then print the posts, scan the prints and put the files through a photogrammetric process (up-ressing) that causes the text to decay and distort and break apart.
