Phosphenes, © 2010 by Aaron F. Ross and Anna Geyer.
Hypnagogic visual phenomena inspire a seven-minute odyssey of flowing abstract visual music. Anna Geyer manipulates analog film with traditional paint and engraving, plus other esoteric alchemical techniques. Aaron F. Ross animates this source material in high definition video, provides generative 3D computer animation, and also contributes the musical score. We follow in the footsteps of Brakhage, Belson, and James Whitney. Our synthesis of hand-wrought and high-tech illuminates inner spaces with photometric precision. We invite our audience to immerse themselves in the ineffable.
