Slitscanned Presidents (2015)

Taking presidential addresses and slitscanning the video, while manipulating a spectrogram of the audio as if it were a graphic, then turning that back into audio. An exercise in seeing what happens rather than of any great meaning, the material chosen for it’s fixed camera perspective and consistent audio content.
