24ØØ is an editorial project that has its research field in Peter Greenaway’s movie A Zed & Two Noughts. 24ØØ is an operation of alteration of the original movie’s linguistic mannerism, that breaks it apart in 24 separate figures in which, through the scanning of the movie being shown on a computer’s screen, the enlarged subtitles are aleatorily recombined in unprecedented ways, phagocytizing the images and rebuilding a new writing of the movie itself. The new text, fragmented and rich of new potential meanings, aims toward a poetic and visual drift, not caring about the meaning, but caring about the images.
