depends on the rudimentary animation of photographic stills to achieve
a certain aesthetic effect. This primitive animation of photographs
yields a richness and scale that only celluloid film can offer.
The basic unit is the slide projector, which is essentially a mechanical
device that is designed to move through a stack of images. For each
show, TEST: makes use of multiple banks of four projectors. Banks
can be used together to create long continuous images or aimed at
separate screens and surfaces to surround the audience. A custom-made
control system is wired to the projectors. This interface is based
upon the Macintosh platform and controlled by Macromedias
Director. Video, digital audio, RC controlled motors, and other
portable electronics also figure prominently into the scheme, forming
an unlikely hybrid of obsolete tech and new consumer gadgets.
