Working with graphics extracted from some of Peter Rahul’s favourite childhood video games, he nostalgically revisits the simpler time of pixilated graphics. This series of works explore the digital aesthetic of glitches that occur specifically with older 8-bit cartridge format video games. His collages compile graphics which conflict with each other’s sequences, resulting in a hybrid compositional harmony.
Peter likes to have fun with the work he creates in order to rejuvenate his inner child. Growing up during the cultural shift towards the Internet, Peter condones a critical understanding of technology and it’s impact on society. Upon graduating from OCAD University, he hopes to become involved in education to promote an emphasis on digital literacy.
