Avalanche Track

In 2012 I carried a large medium format camera around the South Island of New Zealand.  The aim was to take B&W photographs in the cumbersome, old-fashioned way, experiencing the traditional implications and wonder of chemical-mechanical vision.  I subsequently produced custom software to render the processed still images as a grid of algorithmic drawing elements.  This provided, unexpectedly, a means of lending a curious temporal dimension to the still photographs.  By animating the grid squares, my photographs came alive – or better, were rendered as undead sequences of pixelated video. I have recently returned to this project now that affordable projector technology has sufficient resolution to display this work.  Here is a single, very short and degraded sample clip from the project:
