Time Machines

Based on research on manmade time-measuring devices, the Time Machines project aims to create softwares that produce images composed by time. That is, visual results that condense a length of time into one single image, in a way similar to long-exposure photography and time-lapse videos.

Webcam images are processed by the softwares, their pixels are removed and recombined in order to obtain images with pixels extracted at different moments. The way the pixels are manipulated is based on the study of a time-measuring device in particular, after which the software was named.

Time Machines was awarded the Funarte Visual Art Production Stimulus Grant in 2014.
