We are interested in creating projects about how human thinking is structured through genre and repetition, and the role that technology plays in those processes. In order to focus attention on these structures, our work takes a formal analysis of narrative as a point of departure, reexamining television series, films and classic science fiction literature, creating installations, net art, or live events from what we find. Our method is to interpret mainstream visual culture from the pre-digital era by crossreferencing and reconstituting the original material into a non-linear repository of content available, much like all computer data, for selective viewing and manipulation. We are interested in adding to the history of machines used to create moving images, from magic lantern theaters and zoetropes through net art.
