captures single moments in time at a rate of around 0.000000016091194
seconds, assigning each with a single colour pixel, amalgamated into
video stills. These stills, a consolidation of 2,073,600 spatially and
temporally defined moments, then play in a sequence of 30fps (29.97
frames per second in the NTSC system). To put this into context, if each
of these moments in time corresponded to film, which runs at 24fps, one
second of recorded time in video would last 29.97 days. What we are
actually seeing is millions of moments, recorded and presented at a
rapidity far beyond our perceptual limits, creating the illusion of
images moving in continuous time.
the pixels of a digital image are synonymous to the rods and cones of
the eye, video and optical perception read reality by breaking it down
through a sensory systems of smaller parts. Through the rigid form of
videos progressive-scan new images can arise, and although the eyes
process is less implicit, it too can be manipulated. The works in the
show discuss the relationship between digital and optical imaging by
distorting their limitations, producing new images drawn through the
reception of light.
