Noise deals with visual noise in the contemporary field. It outlines a new aesthetics of noise, excess and immersion. It is based on a 2011 book 'Immersion into Noise' by the artist / theorist
Joseph Nechvatal. According to him, the new digital technologies convey an excessive amount of informational data that leads to the progressive merging of the traditional concepts of figure and ground. This merging generates new forms of immersive noise and brings along with it new viewing expectations and experiences. The dozen artists selected for Noise engage mainly with digital media and adopt a modus operandi based on immersion into noise by placing process in a privileged position with regards to representation. They frequently utilize techniques that might have previously been termed as leading to error. They, however, perform a mode of detournement by using error to create unexpected aesthetic critical pleasures.
