I am an audiovisual artist dedicated to pushing the boundaries of artistic expression through the fusion of new media art and analog glitch aesthetics. My artistic practice revolves around creating immersive audiovisual spaces, both physical and virtual, that transcend the constraints of materiality, inviting viewers to delve into the hidden realms concealed within the noise.
In my work, I strive to capture and preserve fleeting moments of consciousness, extracting fragments of awe from the inherent beauty found in imperfections. My creations transport audiences into eerie liminal spaces, where errors and glitches become catalysts for contemplation. These analog dreamscapes resonate with echoes emanating from the boundless abyss of human consciousness.
As a nomad of visceral noise, I traverse the realms of the Mind Palace, collecting textural artifacts that dwell within its undefined shadow spaces. These artifacts serve as raw materials for my artistic exploration, enabling me to construct compositions that transcend conventional boundaries and challenge established norms.
I invite viewers to enter the state of Glitch Catharsis through my works—an experience that triggers a tension within the audiovisual realm, ultimately leading to release. This cathartic journey embraces the power of glitches and embraces their transformative potential, inviting audiences to embrace the unexpected and embrace the chaotic beauty that resides within.
In summary, my artistic practice merges the realms of audio and visual expression, creating captivating experiences that bridge the gap between the tangible and the intangible. Through my work, I aim to awaken a sense of wonder and exploration, encouraging viewers to embrace the unpredictable and discover the extraordinary within the ordinary.
We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates… Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty. “In Praise Of Shadows” by Junichiro Tanizaki //
Egle Saka, born in Lithuania in 1991, is a London-based visual and video artist whose practice revolves around the exploration of analog mediums, specifically glitches, noise, and other distorted or manipulated audiovisual signals. Her artistic journey aims to highlight the beauty that resides within imperfections, inviting viewers to embrace a more authentic connection with their true selves by immersing themselves in the stream of analog errors.
Having obtained a Bachelor's degree in Visual Graphics from the Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania in 2014, Egle's background in printmaking has greatly influenced her current body of work. She seamlessly incorporates elements of the photographic image and printing processes, employing techniques such as complex layering, halftones, grains, and gradients.
While Egle initially focused on limited edition screen prints and graphic art, her creative focus has shifted towards experimental video art and live immersive audio-visual performances. She utilizes modified electronics, obsolete cathode ray tube displays, and AV processing software to playback and process broken AV signals, or to create them in real-time. Furthermore, her recent works feature integrated elements of sound, derived from experimentally processed field recordings, noise, and electronic ambient soundscapes.
Through her often intense audiovisual stimuli, Egle challenges the viewer's perception of reality, individuality, and time. She delves into the intricate interplay between individual and collective memories, experiences, and identities that arise from working with distorted analog AV sources.
Egle has exhibited her work in various experimental art venues including IKLECTIK and New River Studios, as well as renowned fine art galleries such as Saatchi and Jealous in the UK, and internationally. Her captivating artistic endeavors continue to captivate audiences, inviting them to contemplate the intricate tapestry of human perception and the profound interconnections that exist between art, technology, and the human experience.
