1 mn selection from 19:30 video of same name.
the golden mean, the spiral of proportion that creates what we find beautiful.
Video intended as a projection installation in an art gallery, to function like a painting.
Created using David Montgomery's babyear00 loop as the source ~ his project Aesthetic Species Maps can be found here ~ archive.org/details/AestheticSpeciesMaps
In the process of decaying, altering, and otherwise working the source footage, the persistent spiral remained.
Loop altered in quartz composer and decayed via transcode; composited in FCP X, exported using Compressor.
