The video feedback loop machine creates live fractal graphics

The video feedback loop machine creates live fractal graphics

[15:39 sun,8.August 2021   by ]    

Cinematographer and editor Dave Blair has built a machine that uses classic video feedback loops to create fascinating fractal graphics. The "HD Video Feedback Kinetic Sculpture" consists of five monitors, three cameras, two video switches, several SDI-to-HDMI (and vice versa) converters, a glass pane with a beam splitter, and an HDMI input that can be used to feed content via smartphone or live video feed as the basis for the feedback loop.

Similar to a musical instrument, the artist "plays" the device, but instead of creating sounds, live graphics are created in FullHD quality (1,920 x 1,080) with spirals within spirals, loops within loops, galaxies as well as classic fractal images reminiscent of the shapes of plants or even insects.



If you want to know how the machine was built, you can follow here chronologically, how it was assembled and improved piece by piece and which individual parts it consists of:

There is even praise from the well-known German mathematician specializing in fractals, Heinz-Otto Peitgen (known, among other things, for his book The Beauty of Fractals (1986):I like very much what you are doing. It is fascinating. Reminds me of when I was still playing - experimenting - discovering.



In the future, with the help of backers via GoFundMe, Dave Blair plans to further develop the project and reimagine the machine in metal, replacing the monitors, cameras and switches with 4K models to create even more impressive images, and set up two kinetic video feedback sculptures side by side, connecting the output of one to the input of the other so that two people can create something together.
