Time Jitters, synopsis Time Jitters is a single channel animation that combines drawn and appropriated news imagery becoming a meditation on how the media presents world events. Created by tracing over news imagery both digitally and by hand, Zellen changes the original image in myriad ways. While these original images

are diffused, they never disappear. Images of war, man made and natural disasters, and the destruction they cause are ubiquitous in the media. Through her appropriation and re-presentation, Zellen changes the context, the way the images communicate, and how what they represent is understood.
