Paloma Schnitzer's work is based on her interest in revising the images that surround everyday life, focusing on the relationship between devices, their functioning in societies and the traces they leave.
Repetition, slow motion, analog and digital aberrations appear in her videos, often displayed on obsolete monitors surrounded by found objects. Mistakes are not only a recurring topic in her work but also an incident that is incorporated to the process as a new material.
Her video sculpture "City Loop" depicts a viral video of a robot-weapon walking on ruins and a building under construction from dawn to dusk. By emphasising certain points of the image in a composition of monitors, bricks and debris, the piece inquires into the fate of cities and the vicious cycle "destruction-construction".
She is interested in paying attention to what in an oversight might be taken for granted. Whether collecting images from surveillance cameras, the Internet or processing the reflection of light bathing in urban materials, her work seeks to intertwine the mechanical and the organic, the tangible and the immaterial.
She is exploring the possibilities of intervening public spaces and nightclubs as an alternative context for exhibiting art.
