Programming, video, sound

This piece was made for the ICEBOX Project Space at Crane Arts in Philadelphia. Since the projection area is so large, my first impulse was to scale up the resolution of video that I was working with. In the end I felt it was more interesting to reverse that tendency and make a video as small as possible, in this case using only four pixels.

The colors change based on randomization, but within certain parameters that change over time. The changes from one frame to the next start out with small intervals and increase in contrast the video progresses. The hues of each color also become simpler, eventually ending with only the RGB primaries. This logic is a way of making the composition have a certain level of complexity even with only a 4-pixel resolution.
