LOOM (for Anni Albers), work-in-progress: spring 2018

 

Duration – 2 minute detail from a 100 minute seamless loop
Video formats – 4K + 1080p/HD
Exhibition – lightbox or projection
Soundtrack – silent

 

The moving grid in this video references the structures that would have been in front of Anni Albers while she created her textile artworks. While I made this video, beginning with photographed strands of wool, the generated space I worked in was also a 3D grid: virtual lines defined the vertical, the horizontal, and depth (or the x, y, and z axes). This creation process was game-like … the illusion of space was not unlike the ‘skybox’ 3-dimensional play area found in many video games.
