"The innocuously titled and net-centric exhibition VIDEO:MUSIC consisting of video, sound and live feed is, upon closer inspection, perverted and voyeuristic...

The source material for the work is not only in the flood of images found on the Internet, however. Timothy also speaks of the influence of the Flicker or the Structural film movement of the 1960s and early 70s, in particular one of its chief protagonists Paul Sharits whose seminal work T,O,U,C,H,I,N,G (1968) included a looped soundtrack of the word "destroy"...

While Sharits concern was the raw physicality of the film or the machinery of projector and celluloid, in Timothy D's time this sense of the material has been all but lost to the seemingly intangible (binary) technologies of digital video... Along with his composed soundtrack, that augments a sense of conflict between image and sound, he, like avant-garde or experimental film makers aims to generate a disorientating environment in the gallery that will fracture the audience's understanding of virtual and video imagery as it is encountered in everyday 21st century life."
