Natasha Eves

Natasha embraces production errors and glitch aesthetics; traversing across both digital and analogue techniques and memories, bringing them into the real as a tangible object. Images are sourced through channel hopping, fast forwarding, VHS deterioration, repeated viewings, chance conversations as well as heavily pixelated online videos. The making process embraces technical errors such as the amateur process of data bending images with WordPad alongside relying on the functionality of an old jacquard loom or Passap E8000 knitting machine.

Interested in the relationship between textiles and digital work, Natasha incorporates elements of the moving image throughout her practice. Processed from pixel to yarn, she prefers to utilise lower quality resources such as CRT monitors. She is currently investigating digital degradation and screen cultures. Through breaking the image flow up into screenshots, she uses sequencing and glitch effects to infer movement. These static images are provided with a materiality, turning television into contemporary tapestry. This attempts to validate the significant cultural heritage of these images, acknowledging popular culture (i.e. looney tunes) as inferring communality through collective cultural memory.
