Visual: Threads is an exploration of text and space in a live context. Text will be generated from a number of scriptures and rendered as physical objects where each letter corresponds to a virtual mass and interacts with other letters through elastic connections. The texts are not quoted from the scriptures but extracted in a generative process mixing the metaphors and allusions within the scriptures.
Audio: Threads examines digital transformations of sounds (such as digitizing, encoding and encryption). The sound sources used are a garage sale of samplings from old & new media - digital synthesis techniques, analog instruments, television personalities and broadway recordings.
