Simultaneous Opposites 82: 8:30 A.M. (2009)

by 1049991

Robert's Simultaneous Opposites program loads a video file and initial parameters for loop length, center frame # of loop, and frames per second. The program uses these parameters to play through the loop away from and back toward the center, one frame at a time, simultaneously in opposite directions. The opposing movements through the video file fit together like a zipper. With this algorithm working itself through the files, I modulate, interrupt, and further navigate through the video and audio using triggers and values from a MIDI guitar.
