SCITUATE by Ray Sweeten (of DataSpaceTime)
Single channel video, color, sound, 3 min 45 sec, 2010
In this short single-channel video, the artist interweaves pulsating, colorful imagery resulting from electronic manipulation, with a series of apparently senseless words that eventually make real sentences. Utilizing source material made during a residency at Experimental Television Center, Scituate continues Ray Sweeten’s experiments with feedback loops produced with analog video synthesizers.
“Audio in the piece is produced simultaneously by the same analog circuit (or patch) used to generate the video. Text is algorithmically generated in the Python programming language and punctuated with sine wave tones.”
