Intermodulation of oscillating patterns
Each animation presents a set of circles whose individual movements describe different orbits. The differences of phase (and amplitude) in the frequency of these movements, allows for the emergence of interference patterns that generate (the illusion of) dynamic structures that appear to rotate.
Analog and digital media converge in this series: through the circular opening in the front of a wooden box, audiences can appreciate the apparent motion of the patterns. An analog lens further amplifies (in size and depth) the algorithmic optical illusion projected by the screen.
To create the animated content, Nourathar Studio developed a generative graphics application that allows for the creation, in real-time, of different oscillating patterns. The work presents the resulting machinima, as a sequence of moving inter-modulations, in a space of unexpected depth
