About the book:
Barry van der Rijt (NL) became fascinated by surprising glitches which can occur in digital movie playback. In a timespan of two years he created, obsessively, hundreds of such erroneous images, so called codec errors. By making deliberate distortions in the playback of digital film a series of beautiful ‘deviations’ arose. In Exquisite Errors he categorized these ‘disorders’, inspired by the DSM, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. This manual defines more than three hundred mental disorders and prescribes how to diagnose these. The big difference with the DSM however is that all ‘disorders’ are labeled not negatively but positively. Van der Rijt makes a powerful statement with his work and puts our view on disorders in a new perspective. He not only embraces the beauty of the ‘disorder’ but also points out its importance.
Barry van der Rijt is a Dutch visual artist and experimental filmmaker. He likes to play with film related matter: videotapes, codecs, pixels, screens. With the results of these experiments he creates new meanings, usually resulting in short films. His work was screened on Dutch national television, in musea, at several international festivals in Europe, and at exhibitions outside Europe.
