Untitled attempts to use the incapability or failure of a display technology as a means of affecting and feeding back into the content it is displaying.

Temporal dithering causes the pixels to switch between different shades of black and white at a rate undetectable to the eye, in order to render the grey tones that it’s incapable of reproducing directly. The displays in Untitled have a number of limitations which make it impossible to use this optical and technological effect. They can only display black and white, they can only display one image every second, and they constantly have to wipe the screen to prevent burn in etc. While these features (or lack there of) aren’t noticed in applications they’re designed for, here they become a feature and mechanism for slowing down time by stuttering and struggling to reproduce the grey image.
