This video artwork is a unique documentation - a “capture” from one of my Colour Fields series of code-driven, continuous Flash animations. These animations are akin to performances using video, still image and ActionScript3 code to manipulate the visual content in real-time. The animations play forever: constantly changing layers, blends and movement never display the same sequence of pixels. Each time the animation is launched, it plays differently. These animated artworks look like video, but are in fact non-linear, endless, performed, digital pieces.
The visual content is a combination of abstract and subtle figurative imagery taken from the Blackaeonium archive (PhD project), exploring recombinant content creation as a method of preservation for variable media artworks.
