World Picture Machine

This project is a computer program imaging internal rather than external space: in the same way that a camera pointed at the outside world produces an endless stream depicting a coherent visual world, this program assembles material from an internal collection to image an emergent interior world. It runs in the background on a computer, combining its selections of video, text, and imagery into an event rendered out live. It is the first of a series of three hybrid studio/programming projects taking written language as a common substrate for investigation of the role of data and archiving in studio production, across media.
