v1.0 SOFTWARE

HF CRITICAL MASS is freely available software, which is based on a 1971
film by Hollis Frampton titled "Critical Mass".

HF CRITICAL MASS adopts the structure of the earlier film as an interface
for improvising playback of digital video (quicktime movies).

The films of the late Hollis Frampton spanned the late 1960s through the
early 1980s. His work, Critical Mass, is one of a series of films
collectively titled "Hapax Legomena" that investigate "the specific
conditions of cinematic representation and the limitations and paradoxes of
visual description and narrative." (description by Steve Polta - San
Francisco Cinemateque, 2002)
