Egle Saka’s Style and Method
Egle often gravitates towards the nostalgic textures of analogue aesthetics. Although her style is modern, Egle nevertheless uses photographic grain, analogue pixels, or print press halftone patterns in her usually monochromatic print works. These artworks are often composed of graphic decorations and abstract repetitions, motifs intended to capture an aesthetic of error. Egle causes intentional glitches in the system by corrupting digital data or physically manipulating electronic devices. Among her tools, Egle utilises circuit bent video mixers, camera feedback loops and old CRT TV screens. Then, to capture the result, she photographs and records the TV screen. She then takes the resulting raw files and uses them as the foundation for her screenprints, bringing together technology and traditional artistic media.
