Abstract Machine : Notes

This is a prototype that was built during a residency at the Villa Arson. People come together underneath a video image. By stretching their bodies out, they grow and shrink rectangles which, in their intersections, generate musical notes. After several visually opulent “multimedia” installations, the idea was to return to a more basic computer image, reflecting the individual components that construct the “circuit” of the machine.
