A NEW MOVIE

conner

This application uses mouse movements to create a new edit of Bruce Conner’s “A Movie”(1958). “A New Movie” maps each x/y position of the users screen and assigns each position of the screen to an edit point of “A Movie”. The application watches and records the users mouse movement over a chosen period of time. When enough data has been collected the application will re-edit the original version of ”A Movie”. The user can then view the re-edited version, which keeps the original soundtrack in place but rearranges the visual track according to the users daily mouse movements.

CONNER TIMES TEN

First in a series of applications made in homage to Bruce Conner, “Conner Times Ten” is an application that creates new images using Bruce Conner’s film “Ten Second Film” as its source. Conner’s “Ten Second Film”, which was made for the 1965 New York Film Festival but never shown during the festival because it was believed to be too “risky”, was made from ten film strips each 24 frames long. Using only multiples of 10 and 24 the application “Conner Times Ten” randomly chooses a frame from Conner’s “Ten Second Film” and new images are made from this frame. These new images are never the same or repeated in the same sequence.

LA MEDIA NARANJA PROJECT – Electronic Güiro

Electronic Güiro
This project converts a metal güiro, which is normally used as a percussive instrument, into a video instrument. The güiro is modified with an arduino to create a link between the instrument and a computer. Every rib on the güiro becomes a switch, when a rib is struck a signal is sent to advance a video clip one frame. A musician can play the instrument as it is normally played, however in this case the performer produces video as well as audio.

La Media Naranja Project

La Media Naranja Project converts traditional music instruments, used in the Americas, into audio/visual instruments. The instruments can be played as they are normally used; however they also control real-time video manipulation and playback.
