Candy Cane (2004)

The video used in Candy Cane is of a crumpled mini-dv tape. As the mouse moves over each square, different notes can be played. The mouse can also be used to mix audio over the carnival song. Many of the tracks are played in reverse to give the sense of scrubbing through a sound file. The audio mixing also mimics the changing of stations on a radio dial, while the video takes on the appearance of television static. When a square is clicked, a bell sounds and the square's color overlays the screen.
