Another new video, I really like this one. It will take up almost 16mb of hard drive space, and just over three minutes of your attention:

Farbensalz, new + improved

Pewter Dachshund has bad-assedly written a soundtrack to complete this video, which appeared in a similar form here before (with a found soundtrack by Signal). I’ve submitted this for consideration in the Sarasota Film Festival… if accepted, it would play in their music video shorts program in April.

It was fun putting this together– I’m sure it was a challenge to make a soundtrack to an already-existing piece of video, especially when I pretty much didn’t want to make any cuts in the piece, but rather to have it flow along, evolving.

This is not really a cohesive “thing” per se, just an experiment I’m happy with. The cuts to purple are where I edited out parts that didn’t make me so happy. Lo siento, no music.

Here’s a recent video… I’ve been making lots using an object that gives me a grid of squares to play with. The music is “Sporett” from Signal’s latest album, Robotron


(the video is about 21 MB, so you should go pet your cat or eat pumpernickel while it loads)

Chicago shine

Posted in Video on July 29th, 2007 by (contact)

Here are two videos that I made by applying staggered frame-blending to footage I shot in Chicago in December.

The first is close-up footage of the Cloud Gate (aka the Bean), a huge reflective metal sculpture by Anish Kapoor. The second is made from footage of the city skyline, as seen from the Field Museum.

I’m going a little easier on the eyes here, these are much softer than my usual stuff.

Here’s a video I shot of a piece by video/sculpture artist Tony Oursler, titled “Climaxed.” This was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, September 2005. Spooky!

some new video fun.

are you there, Moriarty?

Posted in Animation, Video on February 28th, 2007 by (contact)

We’re having fun making spazportraits. Would anyone want to make a soundtrack for this?

are you there, Moriarty?

Are you there Moriarty? is a parlour game in which two players at a time participate in a duel of sorts. Each player is blindfolded and given a rolled up newspaper (or anything that comes handy and is not likely to injure) to use as a weapon. The players then lie on their backs head to head with about three feet of space between them – or in other versions hold outstretched hands, or stand holding hands as in a handshake. The starting player says “Are you there Moriarty?”. The other player, when ready, says “Yes”. At this point the start player attempts to hit the other player with his newspaper by swinging it over his head. The other player then attempts to hit the starting player with his newspaper. The first player to be hit is eliminated from the game and another player takes his place. The objective of the game is to remain in the game as long as possible.

There is a small amount of strategy to the game. In order to avoid being hit, each player may roll to one side or the other. The decision of which direction to roll, or whether to roll at all often determines whether the player is hit by his opponent. A player who can quickly roll out of the way after speaking or striking will have a definite advantage in the game. However, like most parlor games, the appeal of this game largely lies in its spectacle and humor rather than its strategy.

Flew back to Florida today, leaving NYC behind for 1+ months. I’m a lot more productive down here, so if anyone wants to collaborate on anything, hit me up.

We have a podcast. Any movies or mp3’s that are linked in posts should be showing up normally. The file will be named by the name of the post, and the text of the post will appear in comments. In order to keep it pretty, we’ll have to use HTML equivalents of some characters, like ampersands, quotes, apostrophes, etc. This page has a list of common HTML character codes.

The link for podcasts is

I’ve also added a link in the right column to subscribe directly with iTunes.

When posting movies and audio, only include one file per post if you want them to show up properly in the podcast. Otherwise only the first file will be included, while the description will still list all of them.

Figure puppets made by Michelle Krasowski, mandala puppet made by myself. Puppeteering by Michelle K and David Robinson. Effects by myself.

That last post reminded of this thing I did with After Effects a while back, messing with time displacements.

Technically, it’s autumn now… the daily thunderstorms and ridiculous humidity here in Florida indicate otherwise, however. Here’s a new, I quite like its progression. I love it when people leave comments and feedback…

Here’s a video I shot in my house– it’s a lizard eating a small gecko. Look carefully at the lizard at the end: you can see the gecko squirming around inside his belly! Ah, the horrors of sustenance…

hey all,

here’s a fun site with sculpted (sometimes topographical) scrolling text from the Bible, Borges, dead sea scrolls, etc.

a very interesting way to read.

John Whitney’s Digital Harmony realized

Posted in Audio, Video on May 15th, 2006 by (contact)

Here’s a Flash animation setup to illustrate the principles of digital harmony (for visual music) that John Whitney set out in his book. Having read the book, it’s really cool to be able to see a video of the examples, rather than try to visualize the movements. The guy who did this in Flash also set it up to translate the visuals into sound, completing the circle of medium translation.

Quicktime Embedding Plugin

I just installed a plugin from mobvcasting that’ll let you embed your quicktime movies directly into your posts. All you have to do is put

where the 2 numbers are the sizes of your movie, and the url, naturally, is your own URL. It’ll load up and play like the movie below.
