These images make up part of an ongoing collection dedicated to lost time. The buffer screen is something that we are all familiar with and every single instance presents an interesting visual paradox. Each one is obviously part of something larger but because of a technical glitch the image becomes serendipitous and shown over a longer period than was intended. It gave me the opportunity to recognise formal qualities at random; something that you also do when presented with a painting or photograph that you haven't seen before.
No matter which platform that you are on, the loading symbol has connotations of frustration and 'dead time'... but purely because we are forced to look at it, the image behind it takes on much the same role that advertising does. You don't choose to look at it but it's there nevertheless.
Any guesses as to what they're from..?
