Our eyes are slow, great speeds pass us by without us seeing them. What we then observe is a fusion of form and color over time. Only as soon as we divide the movement into moments do we see clearly what is moving.
‘Hidden Patterns // 2’ uses simple early animation techniques to explore the wonderful creative power of our brain. Movement as an optical illusion.
A disc with a cut-out symmetrical pattern rotates and is projected through with a composition of light frequencies.
As a result, the pattern wheel is always briefly exposed. By playing with complex light patterns, we observe different moving patterns.
The composition of light flickers is made using synthesizer simulators.
By placing light sensors in the projection, the moving patterns are made audible. The light and sound are thus naturally perfectly synchronized.
