Building on a Detail


Included in Parts & Labour, the second Animate OPEN, online from 1 April to 30 May 2016 only.

Building on a Detail was produced in response to a frame extracted from an earlier animation, and the work was built up and around this particular frame, which acted as a compositional starting point. The source material was produced from a series of experiments using an analogue video synthesiser: this involved analogue mark making techniques such as the voltage controlled disturbance of a video signal, as well as the generation of traditional video materials such as colour ramps, white noise and a variety of video waveforms. The source materials are then digitally edited together the composition developed intuitively, adding and removing geometric and textural elements to create rhythm and form within the work.
