Pixels versus the Perfect Imagery

Mathieu St-Pierre is a Canadian artist who focuses on visual artifacts created by various computer programs and from the more traditional analog video signals. The consequence of those imperfections and corrupted files are his landscapes and narrative images (stills). Also, having a film background helps him to compose with emerging medias and explore new possibilities of the digital canvas.

The images not only document the fragility of those virtual data, they are often capable of triggering memories and associations from real world life experience. We are consequently faced with electronic malfunctions in the realm of pixels versus the perfect imagery.
