Chronotopic Anamorphosis


This video shows the test of a software developed as a programming exercise.

The image is digitally manipulated by fragmenting it into horizontal lines and then combining lines from different frames in the display. The result is a distorsion of the figures caused by their motion in time, or, as Brazilian researcher Arlindo Machado calls it: chronotopic anamorphosis.

The effect was completely based on Zbigniew Rybczynski’s “The Fourth Dimension”, but transposed to Processing programming environment and performed in real-time.

The software still has some memory issues, specially when the image rendering is combined with video recording, as it can be seen in this video.
