This video loop originated as a black and white 35mm film, shot with a hand cranked antique Bell and Howell movie camera of mountain landscapes in British Columbia's interior. That material was transferred to HD video, re-coded with a colour matrix extrapolated from data derived from an experiment in film emulsion using tinted blood cells as photographic grain.  This experiment then went through an additional morphic process using an imperfect  Arnold's cat map, (a mathematical function, a sort of chaotic map, transforming an image by shearing) to stretch, mix and reconstitute the image, resulting in highly coloured visual dynamics in which the original image reappears and disappears through noise.  It is an exercise in aesthetics, time, and pattern recognition.

This video is to be watched in parallel with the work Shot On Blood: Kozmikonic Electronica.
