Loop

Loop – a film created from paintings created from computer prints created from photos created from film

Inspired by the book ‘I am a Strange Loop’ by Douglas Hoffstader 

“Patterns can be copied from one medium to another, even between radically different media…

Some of the people … are fictional, while others hover between the fictional and the real…

What we are actually seeing is a myriad of pixels… dynamically shifting patterns of colour splotches that once were scattered off some animate objects…

We are watching a million or so dots that ‘code’ for these peoples emotions”
