Split Screen Time Delay Study 001

Another time delay video experiment. In this example I used a tracking shot that moves from left to right. At the horizontal half way point, a thin strip is sampled from the current frame. As subsequent frames are sampled, previous strips are pushed to the left. I have tried to match the speed of the strip animation to the speed of the camera tracking movement.

The result is visually interesting as a representation of near future and current time (which are dynamic) being frozen into the past (which is static). The audio is generated by a Quartz Composer patch that converts the pixel colours sampled at the point of slice creation into sound information that is reminiscent of machine noise. This is the first time I have used this technique and although the result is not particularly inspiring, the idea of sound being created from pixels is of interest and worthy of further investigation.
