Experimental Film

Untitled No.1

365 days ago, Parag K. Mital and Evan Boehm collaborated on a video collage that was computationally generated using news images collected over the previous 24 hour period.

Previously unreleased, this experimental, self generating film is all about the unique ‘moment’ the film is created. It is about our collective consciousness of the right now. On the one year anniversary of the film, Mital and Boehm have decided to share it as a snapshot of one year today.

The technology is Corpus-based Visual Synthesis. It takes photographic images and re-builds visual input using only images selected from a database. The database was comprised of creative commons images pulled algorithmically from news and cultural feeds on the day of generation. As a result, the film was generated the day of release to symbolise what was happening at that moment.

The Technique:

STAGE 1 – Collate a database of visual resources

STAGE 2 – Build a base animation in 3D

STAGE 3 – Visual database reconstructs base animation
