The artist's fascination with the transmission of data is further explored in the cluster of videos referred to as the HD Streaming series. The series title refers to works of high-definition video being shot on and, in some cases, simultaneously streamed over the Internet via his smart phone with built-in mobile phone applications.

The four HD video works on exhibit at MOGA all share a common theme that continually reappears in much of the work produced by The Artist 2.0, namely the increasingly glitchy interrelationship between nature, water, data, and flow. Perhaps most interesting to historians tracing the trajectory of the artist’s movements through different residencies and locations around the globe, are where these video images are being captured. Are the images being captured in the Northwest of England? The Rocky Mountains of the United States? Brazil? The verdict is still out but the eloquent use of datamoshing techniques to create maximal glitch effect can not be denied.
