Sabrina Ratté’s Activated Memory is a video based on animated photographs of different Montreal parks. Activated Memory is a journey through a serene landscape where the trees and fields are at once surreal and familiar. Through the use of video feedback, 3d animation and color manipulations, the pictures render a new kind of space, a virtual world where only fragments of “reality” subsist. Music composed by Roger Tellier-Craig.

American Cypher is a suite of projects that respond to American stories about race and DNA. The first module of this project was a sound installation commissioned by Bucknell University, inspired by Thomas Jefferson (the 3rd US president) and Sally Hemings (his slave and, as DNA tests confirm, mother to his children). The piece that we’ve made for the Download series is a performance score. The image in the video was recorded in the basement of Jefferson’s plantation, Monticello, in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The component parts included here—four animated GIFs and an SWF—are not to be understood as independent works, but are to be combined in a browser to produce Ana Maria Uribe’s 1997 poem “Angeles en bandana (A Flock of Angels).” The poem arranges fifteen Garamond “T” characters in the form of an upside down triangle and animates them with out-of-sync bevels and inner glows. While this animation loops, so does a short piece of metallic-sounding audio titled “humhum.swf.” This and other Uribe anipoems are online thanks to Vispo. This title was included in Library Stack as part of the collection Open Font ...

Birth, Art Gallery, Death is a minimalist triptych in the form of a screensaver package by Elna Frederick, an obscure artist from Computers Club. With white as life and black as death, each screen saver panel marks a stage in the cycle of consciousness. Birth is the genesis of consciousness through a birth canal of white arriving out of darkness. Art Gallery, where black is conspicuously absent, is the finite enclosure of a lifetime. Its contents are the thoughts and creations arising in consciousness; representations of life. Death, represented by black slowly descending upon a white screen, is ultimately a ...

ECCOS is a modification of the soundtrack from an Ecco the Dolphin gameplay video found on Youtube. Wilson contextualizes ECCOS as furniture music: not a centerpiece, but a backdrop for thought and other activities. The project utilizes an input output system, in which he employs the simple “change speed” and “echo” effects in Final Cut Pro and pushes them to their maximum values. Wilson has diagrammed the process, relating it to kindred experiments like Brian Eno’s Discreet Music. In that spirit, ECCOS seeks–and finds–a limit within the music itself.
