Daniel Wechsler is a video artist & audio engineer currently based in Tel-Aviv. Focusing on the creation of new video techniques, he uses computer errors and malfunctions to create visual ’bugs’.
These faults and errors are then assembled to become new methods enabling us to reflect on our own faults. His work deals with personal and collective trauma, seeking new ways to touch old wounds. As an SAE graduate, his preliminary field of expertise was audio engineering for post production, working both in London and TLV. For the past 8 years he has been filming, editing and creating video & digital art, participating in numerous exhibitions and art events.
For the “After Hiroshima” exhibition, he presented the video “Little Boy”: whilst experimenting for new techniques to manipulate video, an attempt was made with the intention to exhaust different video filters and the on board graphics card.
The end result was a new technique consisting of malfunctions, allowing a new way to present the moving and still image. From that point on, it only seemed natural to combine one fatal error with a few minor ones.
