Evan Bech uses screen capture to create three-dimensional moving sculptures on the desktop. As he repositions windows on the desktop, the feedback of the image keeps regenerating and creating a sense of depth in the y axis direction.
The trick is the same as when mirror to mirror can create an endless repetition of images. Here, the moving image is recorded by screen capture which is then played back on the screen. This repetition creates the same affect as if you were pointing a video camera at the screen.
There is always something interesting when the analogue techniques are used digitally. If you like this, you’ll also love Emilio’s work (see mac lab).
