Audio/Video installation // experimental shortfilm

Duration: 18:50

The piece melts was done in an attempt to explore the optics and sonics of hallucinatory experiences.
It creates an unfamiliarity with an everyday object through magnification and augmentation.

A central topic is movement and stasis. A natural process of transformation as a starting point fuels and is amplified by algorithmically generated distortions. Expanding directions of movement as well as periods of apparent motionlessness. The ever dilating time is also an invitation to take in details of the constantly changing picture.

The video was realized using the aviglitch ruby library to alter the footage I shot on my Canon with a reverse lense adapter and blender to sequence it with a script and by hand. The audio was produced in Ableton Live.
