Shanghai Traces

    Shanghai Traces (High Resolution)

    Photographs of street vendor wares are loaded into Jitter as jxf files and moved from the top to the bottom of the screen, interpolating to a new rotation on each frame as they "fall." For each pass, a random hue and size are chosen, according to a table of possible values. A simple feedback mechanism (using the max operator) ensures that the screen is slowly fading to white, while the objects are constantly writing darker values.
    The audio uses a similar process, a simple delay (with varying feedback) on small chunks of recorded interviews with street vendors.
