This video loop originated as B&W 35 mm film shot with a hand-cranked antique Bell & Howell movie camera of mountain landscapes in British Columbia’s interior. That material was transferred to HD video, re-coded with a colour matrix extrapolated from data derived from an experiment in film emulsion using tinted blood cells as photographic grain. This experiment then went through an additional morphic process using an imperfect Arnold’s cat map to stretch and mix and reconstitute the image, resulting in a highly coloured glaze and visual dynamics in which the original image reappears and disappears through noise. It is an exercise in aesthetics, time, and pattern recognition.
