This group represents a development/expansion of an algorithm named “decay” that I wrote an initial version of in 2007. The original algorithm explored gradual decay of visual order, as do its varied descendants.
After much experimentation with compressing the remapping videos for web, I’ve posted my best results to date.
Now all I have to do is produce the thesis…
Fortunately, I have a fabulous committee – Justin Wolff, art historian and author of Richard Caton Woodville: American Painter, Artful Dodger, Jon Ippolito, artist, curator, co-author of At the Edge of Art and “footsoldier in the battle between network and hierarchic cultures,” and Owen Smith, artist, Fluxus scholar, and author of Fluxus: The History of an Attitude.
Over the past couple of months, I’ve been working on a new video project, mapping video source material to image archives. It’s been an interesting project, as I’ve discovered that a number of variables – frame rate, motion, composition of mapping material – significantly impact the relationship between source and mapping materials.
The video source material is shots of Times Square gathered on YouTube, the image archive is still images of flowers gathered online.
