the mean (1 mn)

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.
