"Lament IV - Waves" is a video graphics work generated using only simple sine tones as both source and control signals. The wave form signifies a pure cyclical process, one that is intimately linked to the revolution of planets, their orbit about the sun, the changing of tides, and the topology of water in motion. The Lament series stems from a meditation on the eco-destructive powers of mature global capitalism, and a loss of innocence symbolized by the polluting of our aquatic ecosystems.
This work was produced at the Experimental Television Center in Owego, NY in 2009 as part of the summer artist in residence program. The video signal is completely synthesized from sine tones and colorized using a Sandin image processor.
