      This audiovisual version of Spectral City was realized for the NoiseGate Festival at New York University. In this version, both a microphone and a video camera are positioned out of a sixth-floor window overlooking W. 4th Street. The video images are distorted according to relationship between the spatial location of the pixels in the original image, and their location as data in a hue-saturation-value colorspace. The lower row of monitors are hardly distorted at all, and the top row almost entirely reflects the color rather than positional values of the pixels.
