Decay theory proposes that memory fades due to the mere passage of time. Information is therefore less available for later retrieval as time passes and memory, as well as memory strength, wears away.

In one sense digital images are just a long string of binary code. To make sense they need to be reinterpreted by a computer program. A typical piece of code might look like this - M}:∏Q—6‘“H&‘v@k7∂b“P|.

My images were produced using a process of glitching. That is, mistakes or bugs were deliberately and randomly introduced to a file by either deleting or by moving the code around. The results are always unpredictable, they are sometimes very ugly and sometimes quite beautiful.

I began with one image of the Queens Park bandstand and from this manipulated the digital code many times to create corrupted versions of the original. As the process continued more and more information was removed until just a few blocks of colour remained.
