Experimental Analog Feedback

Created with a Hi-8 CCD camera, a CRT tv, two mirrors, and a cheap lighter.  No input other than an occasional flash from the lighter was fed into the system; the emergent patterns result directly from cumulative noise, symmetry and autocatalytic analog feedback.  Post processing is limited to occasional saturation boosting and black level adjustment.  Artists: John Sheils & Nick Cattell.  Music: Aphex Twin, Windowlicker Acid Edit, written, produced and engineered by Richard D James, (c) 2003.
