Bill Seaman :: The Exquisite Mechanism of Shivers [1991/94]

The CD-ROM adaptation of the interactive video installation »The Exquisite Mechanism of Shivers« was developed for the first artintact issue. The source material of this piece is a 28-minute video work comprised of 33 brief text, image, and musical sequences. Each sequence [or musical movement] is divided into 10 media modules. This produces a template of 330 media-fragments that make up the poetic variables of the piece. The work explores the combination and re-combination of this set of specific media elements. Each module is presented as a word [or words] superimposed over a related time-based visual image, accompanied by a musical fragment.
