Flicker (2020)

Flicker is a looping animation which stems from the idea of glitch being present in the real world as well as the digital. Glitches happen all the time when using digital technology day to day so it was on my mind the idea of this failing code and where that can be found in the real world as well.

My first thought was a lightbulb flickering, normally a lightbulb is meant to be on or off but instead you have something that succeeds in neither.

By looping the animation the bulb fails and continues to fail endlessly.

I think it’s an interesting juxtaposition, intentionally making something to look like it’s failing, so is a success in failure really a failure?
