Emma Åvall – “Through a highly saturated colour palette and classical painting compositions and poses, I’ve been looking to create contrast. A juxtaposition. The absurdity of spending time on something that is supposed to be a millisecond of mechanical error. Making the unwanted something that I want. Giving the malfunction a function. Giving meaning to the error. I’m searching for that instant moment of time in the virtual world to become something lasting and to create movement in stillness. By spending hours, days, weeks and sometimes even months on these depictions of computer irregularities, I strive to capture the beauty in the failure.”
