Future Relic
The Transdimensional Compass:: How a shiny 16mm film cannister becomes a relic from the future.

Bronze paint, black antique wash, and a blue-green patina created the oxidized look. Inside the canister sits an iPad. Underneath sits an industrial lazy-suzan (Chinatown for 40$). The Cycling'74 iPad app passes the iPad's compass information to a MaxMSP Jitter program running on my Mac. Rotational information from the compass taken as the device turns is used to inform the variables of a computational feedback loop. The resulting image is projected on the cannister.
