Like a seascape in which the water has been contaminated by a devilish pollutant, Weird Ass Shark (2016) is animated by intrusive blades of colour that intermittently cut through the prevailing video interference like paint falling over a canvas. Pulses cut through a dense tangle of static noise like blips on a radar. Like other works in the Thread Through The Eye collection Weird Ass Shark is in the thrall of an aggressive intrusion of information as white noise – a plague of pixelated pigments. The calmly corrupted image disrupts our common sense and challenges (as with all of LoVid’s video works), our notion of what is normal and our determined desire to understand everything we see.
