A video I made for the Siggraph Sketches presentation of the project in 2006. The Bridge has also been selected to become one of the projects featured on the visual complexity portal (visualcomplexity.com/vc/project.cfm?id=608), something I am very proud of indeed. The description is as follows:
"The aim of this project is to visually demonstrate my understanding of the evolution of the computer generated "image work", by means of a free associative process that utilizes the search and query mechanisms of the internet. I have tried to create a structure that displays this process by showing the data gathered in detail as well as in its entirety: Zooming in and out of objects and virtual navigation follow paths of free associations that can be evoked through online thesauruses, internet search engines and the ensuing surf mechanisms that can be utilized in the act of image creation, very much like collage/assemblage. Thus, seeking chance encounters and found objects, I turn not to second hand shops, bookstores and discarded magazines and catalogs, but to the internet. My process is inverted to that of collage in that it is the associations themselves that reveal the found object and not the object that reveals the associations."

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
