Body degree zero
alization is a combination of abstract generated forms and found imagery. The frequency, amplitude, and percentage differences between samples of incoming data are mapped to forms moving in computer 3-space. The data is used to change the position, scale, shape and physics of simple primitive meshes where each vertex of the mesh starts at 0, 0, 0, and the object has no velocity, mass or other property. The incoming data is visualized as spikes, amoeba-like blobs and particles that indicate the degree of activity of the participants. Random numbers create noise in the system creating errant and misleading signs. Some visualizations are easily identified: the throbbing of a shape is a beating heart, the increase in particle production is a rise in GSR. Others are suggestive rather than indicative: taking the form of erratic, distorted, cinematic or historical images which are streamed into the space or mapped onto primitives, or of shapes morphing from one form to another too rapidly to ...
