From a low quality video to an high quality compressed video is the aim of this work.

The music sustains the video with an apparently low bit rate sound.
Both sources of video and audio are revealed in the end of the piece, where the process of reconstruction from low quality compression (meaningless) to a high quality compression (meaningful) ends.

The video compression is obtained with iMovie while Adobe Premiere was used for the final montage of the material.

This video is the end of a work in progress project started during spring 2011.
A previous version was premiered in Lugano (CH) during the TecArtEco Festival 4-8 May 2011 (
