This video is part of a series. It was built by splitting a video in half down the middle of the screen, and then playing the two halves at different speeds in a loop. In music, this is called phasing -- the idea was inspired by the composer Steve Reich's phasing experiments.

There is also an interactive version of this series. Custom software built in Max is provided in a gallery so you can make a loop out of live or pre-recorded video, cut the image in half, and then play each half at a different speed.
