Abstract:
“Interface-Twitterstorm3” uses video screen-capture to borrow scrolling timelines, photos and Tweeted text from Twitter – capturing continually updating media columns, as one piece of information rapidly makes way for the next. Many of the video clippings used within this piece feature fragmented talking heads from UK political life. Whilst each individual flickering vertical band or square / rectangle represents an individual video file, they are compiled together to form a mosaic-like interface.
