Collin Zipp is a multidisciplinary video/digital artist who obtained his BFA from the University of Manitoba's School of Art. His video work uses various experimental techniques to explore human perception and memory. Raw video footage is manipulated, and imperfections in the data caused by the technology are utilized to make the medium more self-evident; and create a lo-fi aesthetic.
Zipp: "The imagery within my work results as direct responses to my surrounding environments; I am interested in the ways in which both people and technology can change our natural environments. I am exploring these notions by physically manipulating video imagery. I investigate the notion that digital video is an invulnerable form of recording; immune to the information loss and physical degradation of analog. The physical forces I inflict upon the footage transforms the original video and alters its' perception which in turn alters the perception of the environments within the videos. I use the flaws inherent within the technology to comment on their place and context within our world in accordance with my personal observations."
