In Lossless #5, a water-ballet crafted by the famed Busby Berkley is compressed into an organic mitosis, within which we detect the spirit of a "buggy" Brakhage ghosting about the integrated circuit.

"In Baron and Goodwin's Lossless series, the "materiality" of the digital becomes the source-code for experimental execution. The artists' renditions of appropriated films are certainly not "lossless" (i.e. a copy of the original in which nothing is lost), but rather gainful: through various techniques of digital disruption - compression, file-sharing, the removal of essential digital information - the artists reveal the gain of a "new" media, full of material forms ripe for aesthetic sleuthing." --Braxton Soderman
