Five Against Three - 2012

Five Against Three is an examination of polyrhythmic time structures in video, by compositing two discreet video sequences - one video cut in units of three, while the other video is cut in units of five. Each of these units are 15 frames long, so there is a brief, but recognizable motion in each of the cuts. Since the overall pattern in the video is persistent, there is a tendency by the viewer to stop counting time actively, and rather allow the video to wash over them. The audio maintains the viewer’s sense of motion by layering even-timbral sine tone groups with tapping rhythms, and occasional tonal swells.
