Timesample will be is a open web-based generative video installation created from found footage of existing movie and television footage. A computer vision program has been developed with OpenCV in Processing to detect and capture one second clips of analog clocks. The eventual goal of the project is to collect 24+ hours of footage allowing the clock to display the current local time. Creating such a clock will require the collection of 86,400 individual clock samples. Timesample is an open system that will continue to change and grow due to the release of new movies and the continuous addition of past movies into the system.
