You Are the Prism

Through Which the Universe Shines

Is a Net Art series that I worked on as part of The Current Sea, the creative studio that Sarah Zucker and I founded. The series, ⌘ALTAR, combines animated GIF, photography, sound and net art to produce a truely unique experience. 

For You Are the Prism we wanted a spacey, futuristic feeling that still felt organic. The idea that we're celebrating ourselves in a (virtual) universe that we created and curated is a running theme in this peice. 

The musical compositions are designed for and inspired by Internet. Each track is short and inteded to loop continuiously in conjuntion with a particular image. In the case of You Are the Prism, the still images funtion as Play Buttons which trigger the loops, while simultaniously animating the previously-static picture.
