Between thoughts, I was seriously thinking about video art and the work of people like Nam June Paik (seeing his american flag at the hirshhorn museum at DC changed my life) I was thinking about analogue like-ways to distort video. Far -really far- from my actual habilities, I started by making a simple video synthesizer.
The main idea was to use the 3 analogue video channels (YUV for a version, RGB for the other), assign oscillators to each of them and display the result in a scan-line fashion. With some big errors on the code, the result was actually pretty interesting:
The nice thing about this project, it’s that the result ended up being a very believable TV analogue interference, which me and my comrades have been able to use in several compositing projects (TV/computer screen replacements are a typical compositing task and, there is not any plug in -that i know of- that gives you a texture like that for the interference).
