The Spirit of Things (slowed+reverb) Alon Tayar Video and sound In “The Spirit of Things (slowed+reverb)”, Tayar calls upon the observer and listener to lose focus, and succumb to a digital blurring ranging between 1990's new age tapes and current YouTube remixes. Using artificial intelligence, the artist has morphed images created with the inspiration of chemical waste, matched with a slowed-down version of a not-yet-existent song. As he examines elements of blurring by stretching both visual and musical fragments, Tayar attempts to increase the volume of the digital artifacts in order to conceal his fingerprint, thereby making certain that nothing physical is fully manifested.
