A video is a stream of information and this moving image relies upon the relationship of static frames which are algorithmically determined....
In the language of video compression, the (I) frames are the reference points between which movement is interpolated.
Manual deletion or misplacement of (I) frames results in a video glitch known as a datamosh… the stream of nformation d srupted, d sorgan zed … nterupeted… lost… the ( ) frame removed, rejected… BUT, reclaimed, the (I) frame, the burning bolts of the machine, are at once reasserted in this dance macabre....
(I)FRAME is a mechanical ballet set to the original tempo that characterizes motion on screen at 24 (I) frames a second….

IN EFFLUENCE ACCORD; EMULSION
Musings of leeway, an illusive figure emerges from the emulsion.
One strip of Super-8 film is reconstructed, taped onto 16mm and then re-filmed on the optical printer.
The effluence according to its new emulsion, becoming a reflection of its own action.
