Gilbert Sinnott – 64μs – Germany

64μs (siemens) is the time taken to draw one scanline in a 50hz analogue PAL video signal. In this work, a pre-digital videoart technique of video feedback is used. Color keying and frame synchronization modifications made to an analogue video mixer allow tendrils of phosphor light to be trapped, and held in an invisible embrace.


Gilbert Sinnott is an artist and designer working with electronics, code, video, sound, installation and performance. Under the alias Autr, he performs using repurposed video equipment as a form of live video painting, to explore pre-digital approaches to graphics processing, and its hybridization into new tools and experiments.
