Screencasts: Kinetic Collage

Kinetic Collage project uses Processing open source software and code as a drawing tool and means to create both static and dynamic works.

Fragments of appropriated text, graphics + visuals downloaded from Twitter such as #hashtags, timeline screenshots, tweeted-text and account avatars are recycled, and compressed together in saturated layers then perpetually rotated over time.

Output (so far) includes Processing sketches for onscreen presentation or installation projection, also a series of static images as print-outs on paper and perspex.

Each Processing sketch generates a large circular ‘manadala’ image but only partial views of these can be viewed as dynamic sketches onscreen as seen in the video documentation here.
