The images used for this animation were collected from Google Image searches. Priority was given to images with explicit commercial intentions. Many are from advertisements, magazines, stock photo collections and celebrity publicity shoots. This selective process was intended to filter down the immense range of images readily available to just those that were created for some type of public eye - images that wanted, compositionally, to be seen. In this animation, frame rate and the flow of imagery are moderated roughly by a prerecorded audio excerpt. The excerpt was made using two audio mixers, each fed back through themselves thereby creating variable pitches and rhythmic patterns. The sounds could be manipulated to an extent by adjusting controls on the mixers; however, the results are often sporadic and counterintuitive. The quality is more largely a product of the hardware than of any sort of musicianship.
