Ripple El Pais

Video Photo Info
Ripple evokes the daily news cycle. What we see is a projection with video content from the El Pais’ webpage. An algorithm randomly combines more than 500 videos that are part of recent visual history. Each video leaves a trail that covers the trail of previous videos that have slid down the screen. The effect is of an abstraction that simulates the textures of a fabric. Ripple explores how the constant flow of the Information Society can alter our ability to remember, assimilate, and archive our reality.
