An Informal Catalogue of Slit-Scan Video Artworks and Research

"Slitscan imaging techniques are used to create static images of time–based phenomena. In traditional film photography, slit scan images are created by exposing film as it slides past a slit–shaped aperture. In the digital realm, thin slices are extracted from a sequence of video frames, and concatenated into a new image.

Recently I've seen many new–media projects based on slit–scan techniques. They range from student projects, to Java demonstrations on the site, to works by recognized pioneers of video and interactive art. My inclination to make lists is irresistible, and so I've put together this catalogue as an aid to researchers and students. My aim is to be as inclusive as possible, rather than attempt to winnow the projects down to just a few ideal exemplars or the most significant historic precursors. Thus not all of the examples are even computational: some of the projects described below use motion–picture film, still photography, or analog video techniques."

Jamie Beck's animated GIF photography

"New York City–based fashion photographer Jamie Beck, in collaboration with Kevin Burg, a web designer with a background in video and motion graphics, has created a series of gorgeous animated GIFs she calls 'cinemagraphs'. A couple of them feature Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha, and these have gained quite a bit of media exposure recently. According to Rocha, cinemagraphs are 'more than a photo, but not quite a video.'

Even though the concept of animated GIFs is as old as the Internet, the ones circling around the web are often tacky and low brow. Jamie Beck's animated GIFs, on the other hand, have an amazing atmosphere that has elevated the art of animated GIFs.

Jamie Beck's first few animated images were sequenced still shots looped in rapid succession which is a fairly common way of making an animated image. Then he began utilizing more fluid motion isolated in certain parts of an image to to capture a moment of time, but also to un–freeze a still photograph by showing that moment's temporal movement."
