Life as we know it is ruled by rhythm and cycles from the beginning itself. At any cycle's end, with increased experience, we step at the edge of a fork in our paths. Although we think we are in control, the branch we take depends on rules we don't know. In mathematics, such a situation might be defined as random, i.e., having a result "which cannot be determined but only described probabilistically". Although everyday Humanity increases the amount of knowledge about the Universe, the field is infinite. Every truth we reach opens a new set of questions. If there is a Truth, is it at our fingertips?
This film is part of the Computer Vision Cinema, an experimental research project to apply Computer Vision techniques in the process of filmmaking, in the search for new audiovisual expression languages. The footage is processed by a computer that determines the cuts and framing of the output based on movement detection algorithms, such as frame differencing, background substraction or brightness tracking.
The Computer Vision Cinema project is supported by the Spanish Government Ministry of Education and the Polytechnic University of Valencia. More info: http://www.cvcinema.com
