Chronotopic Anamorphosis

June 26th, 2008

This video ‘Chronotopic Anamorphosis’ is quite simple but the effect is just amazing. It’s part of André Mintz his Marginalia Project. He wrote this piece of software with Processing, which can slice up a video feed horizontally in real-time and display those pieces with a one frame delay. It’s based on Zbigniew Rybczynski’s “The Fourth Dimension”.
Make sure you see the effect when he opens the door!
