Chronotopic Anamorphosis

The video image is fragmented into horizontal lines and then lines from different frames [different times] are combined in a same moment in the display, creating a distorsion effect from the movemente of people and objects throughout time. It's what Brazilian researcher Arlindo Machado calls 'Chronotopic Anamorphosis'. The effect was completely based on Zbigniew Rybczynski's "The Fourth Dimension", but transposed to processing programming environment and performed in real-time.

This experiment was made within the context of Marginalia Project. More information about it, as well as the source code of this software [soon], can be found at marginalia-project.blogspot.com.
