Film Visualisation Artwork

I break each film down into separate frames, roughly 1 Frame per second. The frames are then lined up next to each other chronologically and compressed to average the colours for each frame. Every ‘slice’ is then processed to distribute the colours vertically by intensity of colours and finally the whole pieces is run through different trigonometric functions to produce a final composition. There are approximately 20-40 million points of colour in each piece depending on the number of frames and length of film used.
