"A Battleship Potemkin" is a generative web-based film that appropriates Sergei Eisenstein's 1925 masterpiece, and delegates all editing decisions to the pseudo-random generator algorithm of your web browser. The original shots and their duration are preserved, but their sequential arrangement in montage is dictated by the algorithm, which produces a unique and endless film on each viewing.

The site works best on Safari and Firefox and it may take a while to load, as the film has to be fully stream-loaded to work properly (please be patient!)
