Glitchy GIFs

April 26, 2012 by Davey

Nicolas Boillot‘s installation “Lambeaux” has evolved from the mind bending GIFs on show here to his latest reincarnation which pulls in a live TV feed and outputs as a pixelated stream (video below). The live video installation will be exhibited in La Gare at Coustellet, France from the 27th of June to the 3nd of September 2012.

In his own words:
In “Lambeaux,” the television stream is taken as raw material, a material lacerated by a process of motion capture which extracts in real time all the pixels that have changed during the broadcast. Those fragments are captured and recast in a spatial-temporal way on a twenty-four image loop.

The accumulation process takes place within the contours of past images and the way pixels are then reorganized in real time produces a jagged image with unreal effects—a ghostly memory of the video flux, a colorful palimpsest where fragments of motion and time coexist.
