Endless Sheet

Overhead projectors, car window electric motor, brown paper, motion dector, timber.

Endless Sheet deals with the projected and moving image, using overhead projectors. Specifically this work breaks down the mechanics of animation (stop-motion animation, frame rate) and early computer programming (code, punch cards). The overhead projectors transfer the light that passes through holes in the loop of paper. A simple conveyor system that uses the electric motor from a car window rotates the paper.

The brown paper sheet is a score that the artist has played both musically with a pianola and here as a film. The piece is triggered by a motion sensor that begins a discrete performance.
