A sequence of fire-streaks on a video screen during a thunderstorm. A blue pulsating vortex accelerates its spin cycle as a comet drags its tail. Suddenly as movements become swifter, the interweaving grows yet more ecstatic ; dimension is added to dimension ; until the entire figure of these inter-animated circlings is revealed as the mere superficies of a far vaster pattern, and that figure as the boundary of yet other worlds. Then at the very zenith of complexity, a cascading supernova blasts complexity into a faded simplicity, both ancient and young, beyond comprehension.
This film comprises a series of works documenting The Superusers' performative audio-visual interactions intended to be viewed in 3D space. Each film portrays the creation, propagation, and destruction of a separate digital cosmos where faceless objects dance and sing in a highly-disturbed sense of synaesthesia. All materials were recorded in real-time.
Note: This video is available in both 3D (Side-by-Side Half) for use with stereographic projectors/televisions and active glasses, as well as 2D versions.
This video was made with the support of Lab Gamerz, Aix-en-Provence, France.
