Mad Men: The Bittorrent Episode

Conor McGarrigle compiled a single episode of Mad Men, as it would appear to be incompletely downloaded from the Internet via bittorrent.

The video captures an episode of the popular TV show in the act of being shared by thousands of users on bittorent. The video simultaneously acts as a visualisation of bittorrent traffic and the practice of filesharing and is an aesthetically beautiful by product of the bittorrent process as the pieces of the original file are rearranged and reconfigured into a new transitory in-between state.
