The Ghosts of Burning Man's Past

The Low Res Art Project was created in order to develop techniques with low resolution video screen captures turning them into high quality art pieces. 

When most people do a screen capture off their computer, the resolution is low and even minor adjustments to clean up the image result in a pretty poor looking image not good for much more than viewing on a smartphone. 

The goal of the project is to take low resolution images to a new level. 

The Low Res Project is much like collage on a digital scale, introducing other elements in the original image. All of these pieces work together to create one final high resolution piece of art.

We use low resolution screen captures from videos and webcams, capturing one frame of the video and then radically altering it from its original low res version to something much more dynamic and unusual. This is not as easy as it sounds. In most cases it takes a sharp eye and the ability to run the video at the lowest speed possible to capture the best possible images.

No image in this series is for sale. This is strictly an experimental project. Because we are using screen captures of videos taken by other people, ethically and legally it would not be proper to sell them even in their altered state.  These images are "open source". They are free for use. If you would like high resolution versions please email us at
