Stephen: I wanted to do a completely electronically generated video. No camera stuff at all except for re-shooting the Lissajous figures off the oscilloscope screen. I used Lissajous figures to get the line drawn "angel" floating effects, Conjure drawn geometric shapes, the Fairlight CVI for the repititions, colourising and crawling the image plus video feedback with the CVI and vision mixer wipe patterns to produce the backgrounds. The geometric shapes were drawn and animated in Conjure so that they would set up on thescreen and then replace one by the next, rather like wipes.
Tom: "Now, put the camera out of focus - see?”
