In our increasingly digitized world, unpredictable behaviour from technology is often perceived as negative; however, these glitches can be reinterpreted as an expansion of the possibilities of image production in the digital age. “Oneria” uses datamoshing (a technique in which digital video images are deliberately made unstable) and found footage in different formats (digital HD, VHS, Super 8, …) as paint, inciting glitches and smearing images to create abstract, dreamlike landscapes.
Jeroen Cluckers creates poetic transmissions that explore, question and transform the boundaries between reality and virtuality, cinema and painting, image and imagination. His work has been exhibited in more than 40 countries worldwide, at festivals and venues like Ars Electronica, ZKM, The Hermitage Museum, VIDEOEX, Kurzfilm Festival Hamburg, FILE, VIDEOFORMES, MAXXI Museum, Athens Digital Arts Festival and ISEA. He has received several awards, including Best 60 Seconds Film at the New York Film Week, and Best Experimental Film at TUFF and GISFF. He is affiliated to AP University College in Antwerp (BE) as a lecturer-researcher in virtual reality, immersive storytelling and artificial intelligence. He lives and works in Ghent, Belgium.
