Maybe Rebecca Baron and Douglas Goodwin's 'Lossless' series.

"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
