What this is about

Rhythmus 99 is a digital animation made from still photographs of cityscapes snapped during visits to Hong Kong and Manhattan in 1998. The work takes its title from the Hans Richter's film of 1921 from which this video has been inspired. Both works have a simple purpose, and that is to foreground “movement” as primary structuring element of images. As the movement in this work is applied to image via digital means, the computer is used to make a re/deconstruction of original photographs in order to imbue them with a new expressivity.
