Short test video of part of an installation piece involving multiple audio channels and videos.
The idea was to capture a person as they exist in one particular moment in time. This video example uses myself as the subject, but multiple subjects would be used for this as an installation. The installation itself is generative in that the 4 stereo audio tracks and the video files loop, fade, and re-generate independently from one another.
The audio was created using acoustic instruments with digitally created “harmonics” in Max/Msp centered around a fundamental pitch sourced on a de-tuned guitar.
One could view this as a meditation on time, exploring the notion of self as it exists with in time, both physically and mentally.
I guess I asked myself
What is here?
How do we remember?
