This work is derived from the 1984 film Koyaanisqatsi. Each frame of the film is run through an algorithm which determines the visually dominant color for that frame. In the initial section of the piece, these frames appear as pixels, which appear from left to right in the same temporal order as the original film, thus in some sense allowing one to see the entire film at a glance. In the second part, all of the pixels are moved to their position in a hue-saturation-value colorspace, transforming the relationship of the pixels from the temporal to the spatial.
This work was originally shown a part of the The Arbitrary art of Numbers show at Made in NY Media Center by IFP in 2015, designed for a large plasma screen array with an aspect ration of approximately 11:1.
