One excerpt from a flow of Internet video news: a family is hiding behind a wall in a neighbourhood in Beirut, Lebanon that turned into a warzone.

Additional dimensions are revealed in the scene, and a troubling contrast between imagery and content is created, leading to an unsettling affect: anxiety deconstructed into pixels.
