The Walk Project

On the third day of the third month, I walked the three floors of the University of Hawai'i Art Building with a video camera strapped to my waist, and a toy "calculator" (that children would write numerals on the adding machine tape) in my hand. I used the toy to record the motion of my movement via pencil. I had an assistant who gathered the streaming tape as it streamed behind me. Afterward, I generated a full sequence of jpgs from the video. I cut the tape into 12 inch linear-ordered sections and scanned it, then used a program that synthesized imagery into sound, and I also drew the pattern of the waveform created by my record of my motion in a sound creation program. I output the three sound tracks, and layered them in After Effects and added three tracks of the video offset a small bit from each other.

The Walk Project
This is a conceptual work in sound generation done as an undergraduate art student.
And this is the result.
