"Time Scan", 2004
video camera, custom software, computer, screen display or projector
edition of 6
"Time Scan" is a software art installation that generates a live reflection of its display environment. Forming a surface of gliding static moments in space, the on-screen reflection represents a fragmented trail of the immediate past. Operating as scanner of spatial flux, it displays a history of about 20 seconds, and runs real-time video from right to left along a horizontal axis. Thin slices of a single vertical line of vision in the center of the video frame are extracted and displayed in a continuous scrolling image. Slower movements appear wider and take up more space than quick gestures. This work processes video captured from a small camera and plays on a computer that runs artist-authored software.
