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."

Smart Space: interactive information data space

"Financial data and financial news, by its nature, is a very dry affair – well to most of us who are not in the financial world.

Bloomberg is about communication and information – and we had to find away to showcase this in away which would appeal to all age groups–all walks for life in this very public space opposite Tokyo Station in the new heart of Maruonuchi."

(Klein Dytham Architecture)
