2 x IS

Video work, variation project and display, remix from video “IS”. 2011.

Video. 2011.

2 X IS is a video work, variation project, remix of the video "IS".
The video "IS" (ice in Swedish) was made in 1996 and re-edited for digital purpose in 2006.
It has now been remix, with the same video twice, in a 2 frame video screen, with a slight delay between the 2 video frame.
This is multiplying the sound track, with a small delay, speeding up the ryhtm, since the sound is repeated just few seconds after first bit and overlapping first track.

You can watch 2 x IS in HD on Vimeo.
