The black-and-white particles that constitute digital image noise – what sets them dancing? The rhythm of chaos or perhaps a secret algorithm? They are the means to give form to shapes, objects, and systems until they all dissolve back into a tumultuous expanse of particles. Or perhaps this isn’t the case? keep that dream burning reveals the elusiveness of our modern world’s digital esthetics.


Synopsis

What is the nature of the white noise created by digital media? And what would a journey into its depths look like? Kohlberger’s new film posits an original answer to similar questions as we head straight into the noise of a digital image, where the rhythm of chaos or perhaps a hidden algorithm sets its black-and-white particles dancing. They are the means to give form to shapes, objects, and systems until they all dissolve back into a tumultuous expanse of particles. Or perhaps this isn’t the case? keep that dream burning reveals the elusiveness of our modern world’s digital esthetics.
