Algorhythmic Cinema Deconstruction
54 hours total of movie footage were sampled from broadcast HD movie transmissions at a resolution of 1920x1 pixel resolution, with the horizontal center of the film recorded (@ pixel position #540).
This resulted in a collection of 1080 Quicktime movies, each being 3 minutes in duration.
The 1080 movies were then algorithmically composited into a single movie, one movie per line, for a total 1920x1080 pixels.
Max/MSP/Jitter was used to record the streams at the custom resolution, using a Decklink Intensity Pro analogue input. Compositing was achieved with Apple Motion 3.0 Colorgrading and final output using Magic Bullet Looks in Final Cut Pro.
