TEST: 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 Macromedia’s 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.
